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.
