Seems like a boat lasts me about 3 years...just enough time to fix it up just the way I want it Smile

My last was a 42' Albin Nimbus - fast as hell on all points of sail but she was a tired racer. We gave up on restoration and opted for our current T37.

Here's a nice link youtube link of the Nimbus taken by my son;

Last boat was a C&C27. I saw her for sale last season (26yrs later) and at $10k was tempted to get her for Thursday night races. She was a fast little thing. But storage, slip, and maintenance made me balk.
