" I've heard from a few friends and family members that you'd want to repaint the bottom of the boat every month" "due to this person being family"
Oh heck, get a divorce, or tell him next time he comes around to bring enough drugs to share. Either he's goofing on you or he's got some serious misinformation.
If you want to lead him on, tell him THANK YOU you checked it out and as a matter of fact, you're going to repaint the boat next week, can he show up at 8AM to help you?
Needless to say, don't show up, and curse him out for not being there to help you anyway.
Yeah, my boat yard gives me a great prepaid rate
for paying for all twelve hauls up front, so they can haul it and I can paint
it every month of the year. And I get the bulk rate for buying my paint
all in advance, too. Ahuh, sure.
