Talk by Dr Martin Thomas
A Talk by Paul Armstrong
Owning and maintaining a boat has been likened to “standing in a cold shower, ripping up £50 notes”. Paul will provide a detailed analysis of purchase, operational, repair and consumables costs for a typical boat over its 18 year life, complete with ratios, trends, regressive analysis, and 3 month moving averages!
No, he won’t. He will give you some interesting key financial facts and details, but will also be including almost 20 years’ worth of GCCC pictures, sea-faring tales and racey stories. People will be named, so it is best if you attend!
