My post may have been unclear. I got a partial refund within a few weeks (because the engine had hidden damage) but kept the tatty boat for several years. I never mentioned "two" years for anything. I succeeded because although as a young man (at the time) I was very poor at making purchase decisions, I was fairly good at writing legal letters.

Ah that makes more sense.

Even so legally you had no right to the partial refund unless you had been lied to the condition. Must have been some letter.

Personally, I'm pleased for the guy. I might ask him to write a few letters for me...

It was 25 years ago. Sorry I mentioned it! The point I was making is not that I was ripped off and made a small recovery from a vendor a quarter of a century ago, but that someone today should not allow themselves to be persuaded to buy a tatty boat because they kid themselves that it's a bargain. Buy cheap, buy twice.
