Re: A philosophical divide?

There are things I don't enjoy doing, but enjoy having done.

It's not quite that binary ...

Grinding off 12 years of old bottom paint, is something I certainly "can" do; it doesn't require vast skill, just perseverance. How about grinding off 12 years of old bottom paint while wearing full tyvek, in July, in the hazy, hot, humid Chesapeake? OTOH, I could sit at my desk, in my air-conditioned office, reading and commenting on documents, while earning the money to pay a guy to grind old bottom paint and support his family. As Seaduction said, its only work if you can think of something you'd rather be doing...
