Re: How much should I offer for this boat
I talked to her today. I offered my mooring for next season to let them hang on to the boat one more year.
If they have a good year they may be good for a while.
It doesn't really matter how much you put into a boat if you keep it. Any number amortized over 10 years is not so scary.
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.
