  1. You want to feel worse? Milk subsidies by the US government between 1995 and 2000 were $6.4 billion.
  2. Your "fact" is not correct. Average cost of a gallon of milk is $2.69 https://www.google.com/search?q=gallon+of+milk+price&rlz=1C1MKDC_enUS778US778&oq=gallon+of+milk+price&aqs=chrome..69i57j0i512l9.7343j1j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Average cost of a gallon of gas is $4.43 https://www.google.com/search?q=gallon+of+gas+cost&rlz=1C1MKDC_enUS778US778&sxsrf=AOaemvKzGjOo0tXga_yr_FNaKyfmesOPYw%3A1633648311830&ei=t35fYc_vMcjn1sQP2qymkAw&oq=gallon+of+gas+cost&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAEYADIFCAAQkQIyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCRAjIICAAQsQMQkQIyBQgAEJECMgUIABCABDIFCA
  3. Most of Berkeley's women's beach volleyball team get from class to practice on one of these: https://powersports.honda.com/street/scooter/metropolitan You need to be smart to get into Berkeley so how could you go wrong? Bought my daughter one last weekend after she told me she was riding on the back of her team mate's scooter. I figured her chances of survival were better if she was driving.
  4. Buy an Olson 30 or Hobie 33. Plan to keep it for a year and teach your daughter and wife how to sail. Spend a weekend or two on it during that time. If everyone enjoys themselves, then sell it and go out and buy a SC50. It will seem like a palace compared to those boats. Another SC50 in better shape with a lower cost will be for sale when you’re ready. The SC50 you are looking at is one of the worst I have ever seen.
  5. Do a little research on the broker... oh, here let me help you: https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1990-10-18-fi-3441-story.html I was loyal customer. Purchased 3 boats over the years from him and ended up with a bunch of grief on the last one. Run and don't look back.
  6. When the Hobie 33 was launched, with sails, bottom paint, and basic electronics, out the door they were just under $30K. For comparison purposes a new Corvette was about the same price, just under $30K. In 1983, as a moderately successful 30-year-old, I was able to afford both, along with my small beach front condo in Redondo Beach. Today a Corvette is $80K. My guess is the M33 with sales bottom paint and basic electronics will be in the $250K range. How many moderately successful 30 somethings can afford this boat? My guess is Moore will be very lucky for unit sales to get half
