Your declarative statement of what you are and are not doing is not necessary. In fact, you may limit good advice. Whether you do it or not is always your decision, so why limit the learning?
Well, I guess if I did inspect the Keel Bolts and saw corrosion I would be so depressed as to pretty much list the boat for sail since in the bottom of my mind I would never be able to have peace way from dock again. I guess right now, with everything else thas happened and going on, Im just not ready to deal with that possible can of worms.
Does not mean I dont value your advice or retain it. Many times my comments are meant to be tounge-in-cheek as well. I hope no person here would refrain from giving me their opinion because they thought I did not care to hear it.
