I loved this thread. Massive resonance as I am pretty much in the same boat myself, as it were.
58 years old, eleven year younger wife, two boys, ten and twelve (and in the last stages of a long process of adopting a daughter to complete our family). Looked in the mirror a year and a half ago, did a double take at the difference between my inner self image and the reflecting, and said , "If you don't get that boat now, you never will."
Bought an open bridgedeck Shuttleworth
cat. Been refitting and doing some few weeks trips down the Keys and Bahamas
. My favourite saying at the moment: "How do you get an expensive boat? Buy a cheap
one and refit
But it's all good. Just those few moments sailing at windspeed, dolphins
on the bow, waking up off a sandy beach, arriving at Fort Lauderdale
at night time and being able to deal with it, catching the occasional edible fish
(with a lot of Barracuda going back in), all of it experiences that make the money
Planning for Cuba
later this year, all things being equal.
Now that we are in 2018, how are things progressing, SV Bacchus?
