Re: Another Wet Ericson
Where did you get the photos that you posted? They do not appear in the ad. Right off the bat, I wouldn't trust the owner and the broker, David McKenney of Brewer Yacht Sales, of N. Kingstown, RI.
They deliberately avoided taking photos of any of the damaged areas and the broker lied in his ad saying: "This one has a new engine, sails, electronics and more. She has been well maintained."
I took the photos yesterday.
In his defense when I called him he did tell me about the damage.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
