Hi all, I was wondering, do we all regress after a certain age or a particular amount of life experience and go back to our childhood posessions and experiences? Or do some of us never let go?

I have just managed to secure a plastic outboard motor that I once had on the back of a Japanese red and white plastic day boat, lost on Lake Vyrnwy when I was about 10. And I've just got hold of a Star yacht exactly like the one that was stolen from a lock-up years ago which I treasured as a kid, it always sailed so well. Add that to my nearly 60 year old Sea Urchin and 55 year old Crash Tender and it looks like I'd rather play with the older stuff than the new!
I even bought a real British Seagull outboard tother day locally!
