I have been "messing around boats", and lots of other mechanical things for almost 70 years and for much of that time I was "cheaper than cheap". Looking back on all of it, I made lots of mistakes being "cheap".

As others have mentioned, suggest you be careful with things that can hurt you.

Best of luck, Paul T
