I am by far the youngest person in this DIY boat yard and man am I getting some "what, you own that boat and are DIYing all your work?" looks from some of these boomers working on their bigass motoryachts 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Yeah bud, sailing and power tools aren't just for dads and retirees, you know. Us 20 somethings enjoy grease and grit sometimes too :P

@klardotsh yeah but you'll always be the exception, there's basically no young people sailing around. I honestly can't recall the last time I was sailing and we saw someone under 40.

@neauoire Yeah, aside from a couple late teens/early 20s racers I've seen around Squalicum in Bellingham recently, the youngest adults I've ever seen sailing tend to be the friends I've dragged along...

@klardotsh to the older generation they probably think you're someone's kid or something.
