"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better." -  John Ruskin 1819-1900

Gwen works in the office down town, and had only been on a deck of a vessel before. Our own Chris Cummins took her with him, so she could see what we do, and he gave her lots of knowledge during the four plus hour drive to/from the vessel in Astoria.
