I often go to a store in North Vancouver, BC that is a marine
consignment retailer. Its the type of store where products drop in price
by 1/2 percent of the original asking price
, every day. Its one of the few instances where procrastination pays off.... lol.
By some miracle, the amount the parachute I had been eyeing was dropping by $12 a day rather than the proper amount which was around a dollar per day. I bought a "Used - but never been used" parachute from a guy who had just gotten out of boating
(he was getting to old). So I paid one hundred dollars for the parachute. When I got to the till, the clerk discovered the error in their pricing and to my amazement honoured what the tag said, even though it was wrong.
I now have to purchase
the line to use with the parachute; this item will cost more than the parachute did.
I notice that 300 feet is recommended with a parachute, this strikes me as really long. Any comments on this?
