Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness
I didn't mean to imply that there was any deception. Just the opposite. Jack started with wanting to save another boat that had been underwater. You knew of something that might fit that was far, far better, even if it still needs lots of work. In my view, you have been especially helpful to him in his quest and straight forward in telling him what you know. And it is Jack's business if he wants to proceed.
