I recall going sailing in my friend John's new 23-foot sailboat. The boat had been hurriedly berthed on a mooring, using badly worn three-strand nylon line. We hadn't had the time to replace the line. In fact, we hadn't properly set up the anchoring system or the jiffy reefing system. It was the first available chance to sail her and we were anxious to try her out.
I remember hearing about a couple in their late 50s to mid-60s who decided to follow their dream while they still could. They sold their home, put some of their more precious and sentimental belongings in storage, and bought a boat.
