A quick word on "Good Enough"

The working name for the triloboat I am building is "Good Enough", as in something that is good enough to get the job done properly, without regard for superfluous additions. I ran across a link to a boating blog with some similar thoughts and thought I would share.
If something is "Good Enough", it is not mediocre, but neither is it gold plated. Perfection is the enemy of Good Enough, life is too short to waste trying to build something perfect, as then there would be no time left to go sailing. So if my boat is water tight, safe and serves my purposes, without regard for resale value, it's Good Enough.
As a side note, in honour of another friend, I plan to name her dingy "Plan B"
