Ehhh, not sure about this on my end...

However I know plenty of men, older and younger, who would do bone headed things like this without thinking twice (a few are actually friends who I am contemplating buying a life insurance policy on), the type who know all there is to know about pretty much everything. The type who tell you that if they hit a little squall they don't need reef points they can just start the motor and get away from that lee shore, and besides they are good swimmers even without PFD's

She paid 31,000 POUNDS for a 30 year old, 31' monohull? Isn't that like 45,000 bucks? Sounds like a scheme of some sort to me...
