It baffles me how it happens but I suppose people just get into a spiral.
Buy a 20k boat and find out the out drive is knackered. Get told that the outdrive and other work is 8k but the engine is fairly knackered too but a whole new setup is ‘only’ 17k.
Now they have 37k in it but the tubes are knackered, can’t stop now so another 8k gone.
Then next season realise the floor is knackered, but the boats ‘worth’ 45k now so have to sort it properly. 5k for the floor but then need new seats too, might as well do some other cosmetic work too. We’re well over 50k now.
Now the upholster looks crap for a 50k boat so get it all sorted for another 3 grand. Pushing 60k now...
Oh wait the boat never gets used and can’t face spending another penny on it... so time to sell it. But wait it’s only worth 20k after all this work...
