D: Replacement cost of new boat
at todays prices $220,000, maintenance
cost remains the same at $7,200, but now, this represents 3.7% (Answer to question D)
Therefore, one would expect answers to question D to all be lower than answers to question C. Have I got this wrong?
Your last inference is in line with the original intent of the questions. You do indeed see a skew towards the lower end for question D versus question A. That suggests to me that the majority of folks on this board have older boats - discounted on average by a third.
