    1. Controllable pitch propellers are expensive!
    2. Polyester resin is a boatbuilding material.
    3. A selfmade boat is cheaper than a yardbuilt.

    We are the government and we want to help you.

    This applies to boats, boatbuilding, boat licensing, fishing, fish farming, fishing licenses and also everything else not having anything to do with boats.

    That cannot be a stupid claim Gonzo! Almost every second newbie here has such approach, can they all be wrong?
