That's for sure - in this market you can buy a decent older 35' for what just the initial depreciation would be on a new 40'.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
