All this is sort of just to say that you get what you pay for. That seems to be the bottom line excepting buying
something with hidden/unrealized defects.
I can do a lot of stuff but my
choice is to keep working and making enough to buy what I
want. I do not want to buy a boat and spend a year or two (and a whole truck load of money
- more even?) and then start sailing around.
Like that Shoening (sp?) cat in FL. Boy did I want to look at that...........
Till some others started getting more info on it.
