Re: "You make your money buying the boat, not selling it."

Yes, you should buy right. But, lets not take this too far. In its extreme, it is a good reason not to buy at all.

You should be comfortable that what you pay is fair. You will lose money, particularly on care and feeding. I've heard plenty of stories of proud owners who got all there money back when they sold. They fail to disclose the new sail inventory, since they bought.

Before the example of people that swear they got their money back are posted, I'm sure there is a valid one. The point is, some win the lottery.
