Why is that?
How much would the motor depreciate if it only has a dozen hours on it.

It has an electric start which in my opinion is a very nice but expensive extra that in some sense discounts the motor more because of the installation necessary to move it to a new boat.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
