LOL... I think I know who you're talking about... penny-wise, pound foolish.
There are often very pretty boats that were cleaned up for sale, and if you look in the nooks and crannies, you'll see that the boat wasn't maintained or kept in anywhere near the condition you would be guessing from its current appearance. Look in the deep corners of the bilge, and under the deck, inside cabinets...etc. You'll often find the real story in those places. Surface appearances don't generally mean jack.
You really can't do much about stupid though.. there's far too much of it running around.

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.
