Re: Old-Person's Sailing Vehicle?
If I may state the obvious, anecdotal stories from septuagenarians whose bodies have held up remarkably well won't help you. As long as you can keep doing what you're doing you don't need a new boat. And when it is time you will need something that accomodates a physically deteriorated body. That means things like loss of strength, flexibility, agility, reflexes, and so on. So look for a comfortable, easily handled boat that reflects the realities of the aging process. In other words you need the foresight to build a boat that you don't yet need. Not a lot of us have that foresight. I'd bet there are quite a few 'old persons' who have gone ahead and built the boat they can no longer use.

There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.
