Unfortunately, this math just doesn't work. It can't. Repairs are never worth full value, so your theoretical 30k boat has to be far superior than the 21k+9k boat.

Or more likely, it will cost substantially more than folks are suggesting to get your $21k boat in the condition of the 30k. It has to, there are no exceptions.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
