There's a crack in the hull of our boat. It's going to cost anywhere up to or even over $5k to fix.

The surveyor who checked the boat prior to our purchase is going to be recieving a very nasty letter from our solicitor.

If it's anything like a "home inspector"
...all they have to do is put some language in to cover their ass, and basically they aren't even allowed to tell you anything bad.

Our solicitor has looked over the paperwork and he thinks we have a pretty strong case for the cost of the repairs at least, which is all we really want, so hopefully they'll realize they're at fault and simply ask us to send them the bill rather than having to spend a day in court, which we will do if necessary.

My job search has not been going well, and I hate my current job. I currently feel like I wasted 18 months of my life and $20,000 of your money (via student loans) to get my Masters.

Did I mention that my cardiomyopathy has gotten worse?

Don't mind me...I'm just feeling sorry for myself for a minute...I haven't had a moment like that in a while. Carry on...

Hmm. I guess it's true: you are what you eat.

Copper bottom and then paint the bastard. Unleaded of course. Just pull the sonbitch out of the water every winter and scrub clean and paint when the amb.-temp is above 0' centrigrade. Almighty work I know but there you go. More than a few winter Saturdays and Sundays for you both. Take a picnic and scrub like Tasmainian Devil. You think somebody will do it for you?

Yes someone will do it for us. lol Especially if we pay them.

We can't repair the damage ourselves because the boat is fibreglass and the tools and equipment would cost us more than it'd be worth, aside from the fact that we want it done properly.

I'd rather leave the important stuff to the professionals.
