Clark and I agreed that if he "tried" the props and dinged them, he then owned them --- to which Clark replied "I'll pay to get them repaired if anything happend". I quickly told him that I am not looking to have a set of "referb'd props"... and that if he wanted to try them, he was more than welcome, but if he wrecked them, they were his and he was writing me a check for what I have in them (invoice available).
Well, needless to say, when I met him back at the boat ramp to help him load it up, every single blade was trashed. I felt bad for him, so I told him I would essentially knock off 1000 bucks to try to help him out, knowing he was going to have to pay big bucks to get them fixed.
Clark kept on me about lowering the price even more.... which I couldn't believe he was doing. I told him I didn't have much negotiation ability as my $3800 props were now toast. So, I suggested for Clark to pay me what "he thought" was fair (never mind we he had already given his word ahead of time).
So, bottom line --- Clark thought 2k was fair.... Lesson learned on my end! Not a big deal... We are still friends.
