I hope you agree!
you buy a boat out of warrantee privately in your words
"to good a bargain to miss"
Was it "sold as seen" if not did you go back to the private seller? and if it was did you not see it?
When things don't work out you ask for help great
Then you're offered a permanent solution for less than 10% of your saving on the asking price of the second hand out of warrantee bargain rib, but no you want that as an open ended offer in case you can't fix it on the cheap
So this has now gone on for over a month when you could of had a fix and been on your way with a very nice rib at a great price including the 10% which I think is a fair risk for buying in the private market place
PS What is the warrantee on commercially used Etecs I assume you checked
