a mid range VW Golf in closing in on 30k these days

How do you put shoe's on your feet ? 
If you are not happy with the price don't buy it. If you think any one is getting rich off making or selling dinghy's your sadly mistaken. I here people complain about boat devaluement but are more than happy to buy a new car and lose a lot more money on it than there boat even cost. We have lost a good few boat builders through covid, because the reality is that boats are too cheap for a custom hand built product.

I am hoping you intended quoting someone else!  I never said I wasn't happy with the price, not that I am buying.
