Let me turn the question around Sway. When Dog slams her from the get go, then you come along and throw down a sarcasm-drenched, vitriolic coup de gr‚ce like THIS (which made the FC Hall of Shame by the way - thanks for that)...I think the question is...
Exactly how am I slamming TiaraWakes from the get go? My post:

was asking some pointed and important questions, that I think need to be answered. Please note that TW didn't answer any of them. Only a complete dumb@ss would think that asking for clarification is slamming someone.

Considering that the OP has not answered any of the questions... and only posted further sob story material... it seems pretty light on facts...and sounds more the tactics of someone looking for a free handout than actually having a problem that needs solving. I've pointed out that fixing a transom on a boat is often simpler, cheaper, faster than getting another "free" boat. Yet, TW did not want to post any information towards that much more reasonable solution.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
