I get your point but it's not something that will keep me up at night.
Of course the down side is when it comes time for resale, you probably just shaved 20-40% off the price
for a lot of these items because people are going to question what was wrong that you had to redo the paint
I had a great laugh from this because I did the exact same treatment to a pair of black Reboks that I bought years ago! It's not as though the thoughts are "keeping me up at night", but I do like making my things more generalized than branded advertising.
As for value lost
, like SailorChic34, I have no concerns. I've had my boat for thirty years and I use and repair my gear until it has little value left. Yesterday, I bought a pack of small compression
springs to fix a door latch from my head
. I know more people toss out their forty year old $8 latches
instead of repairing them. ...... "when it comes time for resale" just doesn't happen for people that use their stuff until it's no longer functional.
Oh, and RTB, I am totally with you concerning the "Life Sling"! I have mine covered with Sunbrella!
