The poor guy has to go back to work tomorrow (in 100 degree heat). I felt so sorry for him I offered to use his boat while he was away. I didn't get an answer
Look, with a baby on the way his free time will focus on childcare and organizing and Armor All’ing his Croc collection. With no time for the boat, you should do him the favor and buy it from him. With the current economy and boat prices sliding fast - a generous offer of 7 grand should do the trick.
Sounds like you already tried to help him by making an offer on the boat just to get it out of his hair. Based on that, I guess I would go six grand.I have made many gestures, offers, and suggestions about his boat and hunting spots, being the nice guy I am. All of them more than fair and generous but they seem to fall on deaf ears. He'll learn that dear ol' dad wasn't wrong after all. The Croc collection he can keep.
