"succeed" verb. achieve the desired aim or result. (google)

I chose to define the word "succeed" so that all the poor uneducated people reading this thread could easily understand what was said.

Re: Buying a donated boat

Did you just put bottom paint over all the touch ups ?

Re: Buying a donated boat

Yes we did. Funding is low and we had to do our best with what we had. We would really like to haul out again in a year and do it all properly, but currently we are constrained by money and time. I think it will hold up until then.

What if they did?

These old boats are tough.

I slapped a bit of bottom paint on my $2,000 boat after I bought it and went sailing. Actually, I sailed it the 70 miles South to Va Beach




Next time I did it, 4 years later, I sanded it down a bit deeper along with the topside hull and repainted. I also removed a few layers of fiberglass that were peeling off the bottom.

I believe it's almost an inch thick there so no problem.

Re: Buying a donated boat

It looks nice, I was just curious. I hate doing things twice. Their sailing I'm not. No insult intended.

Re: Buying a donated boat

I sent my don to work in Construction for the summer . After moving lumber from here to there all day I asked him what he thought he wanted to do for a living. He said" Not Construction".
I told him I would only help pay for college if he could prove that there are jobs for his studies. No advanced basket weaving classes. Today as a Engineer he does just fine.

Great.

Hopefully your Don loves being a narrow minded techie. If he is an artist at heart though, he will totally hate his life as an engineer.......

It's kinda like the engineer types here on CF arguing about the most mundane things.

It's totally ridiculous to those with a broader point of view.

I'm a narrow minded techie also but have been struggling to learn the dark side ever since majoring in the liberal arts (in the 80's) and having a son that's an artist.

It really opened my eyes just going into the psychology, philosophy, sociology, and history buildings instead of the engineering and math building at Memphis State. Those buildings and the people there were such a refreshing change from what I had been used to in the tech world

Re: Buying a donated boat

1600 dollars is nothing.. If it floats etc then the hull is worth more than that. Boats are expensive. My winches alone cost me 19000 usd for 8 of them.
sails also cost me 20000 usd.
New mast another 30000 usd.
Your 1600 dollars is nothing compared to what boats chew up.
The word boat is an acronym...
Bring
Out
Another
Thousand

Actually my Son loves what he does and wants to be a teacher when he no longer needs money to support his family. He is quite good at solving problems. He states this is what his job is about. He enrolled in some computer classes for programming and said it was boring. He went sailing with me one time and enjoyed driving the boat. I am sure that he will not do anything he hates, he will figure it out, if and when he needs a change.

I think you touched on the problem. There are to many basket weaving courses offered. Easy A and a party life. Grats to you for your position on paying for it. And boo hoo about those that have to pay huge college loans because of taking useless courses.

I didn't take school serious at all and learned most of my history from the history channel. I Was really upset when I found out about Columbus.
Because of my preference, I am a self taught individual. I learned everything on my own. I always said, the next thing to money is information. Information will allow you to make money. You can get information in many ways.

That being said, no one ever paved the way for me. I figured it out.
I believe in my children. They will figure it out. This is how they learn about life.
We all have choices and only we can decide our best options. Sometimes it takes years to figure it out. When you are paying the price, you will pay attention. I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up.

could have better used his intelligence.

Pardon the drift. I haven't the slightest about its connection to buying a donated boat.
