The definitive answer as to the devalue of dosh is how many Mars bars could be bought for £1 at the relevant time I believe.

Cruising, racing, maintenance facilities. Go take a look, you know you want to.

Yer hard earned is doing hee- haw in the bank so whatever a pound is / was worth is irrelevant - might as well treat yourself while it's worth something.

You can't go sailing in the fresh air on some numbers on a bank statement....

And yer a Lang time deed.

The above are three of the reasons I put forward to myself when deciding to buy another boat, I'll not bore you with the other few dozen :D
