Age of Boat

The Thistle people are having a fun contest to find the person with the greatest differential between the skipper's age and that of the boat. That is, how much older is your boat than you are? The leader at the moment has a boat that is 16 years older than the skipper. Any Scot entries?[:D] Ngulule Customflex #1554

FS 338 is a member of our club and her skipper seems a bit young

FS 338 is a member of our club and her skipper seems a bit younger. I however sail 2450 and am not lucky to sail with an "older woman" FS2450 1974 Captain 1970
