Re: Shameless plug
There is a real sense of satisfaction when you can fix things like an outboard fuel filter or carburetor yourself and not have to pay a so-called expert to do it.
My Atomic 4 engine has been training me to be a mechanic for the past ten years. Ten years ago I had not done more then change the oil or a tire on my car. Because of the mechanical forays with the A4 I now am not afraid to tackle a friends diesel for the simpler stuff.
Perhaps this is one reason why sailboat owners are deemed to be cheap as the owner of a 50' Bendytoe I know once said: "I'm not against spending money, I'm just against spending money needlessly."
