Welcome to the site.

Dennis, I try and look at age as just a number. Being on the water has a therapeutic value. I wish you many years of enjoyment and I can only hope I'm still on the water at your age when I get there.

The club pages aren't as active as the main pages up above. A lot of great members willing to help, post up questions that may come up and I'm sure someone will chime in.

I just bought a Overnighter myself. Wanted something to fish with. My first Grady. Has a 200 hp Yamaha for power. Fish Long Island sound . I have another boat but the wife doesn't like to fish, so she either goes or is left on shore. You get my point. And by the way I'm 76. Bought my first boat in 1980 and have been boating ever since.

Welcome and thank you for the comeback rmatt. i guess lot of us (older guys) are going to do a lot of fishing this coming spring and summer. lol
Bought my first grady as you know from my post so i will be learning this year. Never too old to learn. I also have another boat that I fish around cape cod , smaller 17 ft Starcraft, good little boat. Have a great holiday and enjoy.....
