I learned the most taking what you call the useless courses. They were harder that Calculus and Computer Science for me. I'd never get an A in Basket Weaving......

I majored in History. I had lots of sociology, psychology, criminal justice, and even a few in philosophy courses along with the history

They were great and really helped me at the job I have now.......maintaining flight simulators.

The point is you are what you are. I'm a crappy historian and writer.

Math, computers, and troubleshooting are something that I can grasp quite easily.

Others are very good writers, musicians, and artists but very few of those jobs pay well. In this day and age, it's the tech jobs that pay.

There's nothing special about those that are making lots of money doing a tech job. it's just that it's something they can do.

Back in ancient Greece, it was different...........

Re: Buying a donated boat

Back on topic, Donated Boat.
Anyone interested in a Erickson 28?
Would you consider this too small?
Hasn't been donated yet but owner wants to donate.

Thoughts?

Donate to a non profit that does it correctly. Sounds like a giveaway.

Re: Buying a donated boat

Donated boats can be a great start, but too think it only needs paint when you have little experience will be a lesson. Nothing wrong with a project, just get an honest expert opinion if your not sure.
Nothing more expensive than a free boat, or a free horse.

Re: Buying a donated boat

I am not sure I understand donated? Donated, being it given to you? It is getting rid of a liability. Run!

Re: Buying a donated boat

Survey should be done on donate boat.
The problem is most don't want to pay, so they take their chances.
Always try to be informed consumer.

Don't watch the news, no cable. Did not have a TV for last nine years.
I only have one with Net-flicks currently . Refuse to watch the negative feed, you got that one wrong, You think school is more accurate? What about Medical School and all the legal drug pushers?

Re: Buying a donated boat

Ok I'll bite.
Buying a donated boat.
It's where somone donates their boat to a charity and it is bought by someone else. Hence, I bought a donated boat.
