Thanks guys, there really was a lot of interest with emails from all over the world.
When it comes to boat gear that I want but don't need immediately, I usually do a little research and make myself familiar with the item including what its worth new and how available it is... then when one comes up at a good price, if I have the cash at that time I buy it without too much thinking about things.
Lots of things I want for my yacht, but the yacht is pretty okay the way it is so I simply keep my eye out, makes buying much cheaper than waiting till its needed.
After all we are always renewing, replacing and adding to, during the ownership of the yacht.
...once I had money ... and then I bought a yacht ... ahhhh wellll ...
