Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How much is the barge worth and how much have YOU spent on the renovations?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi the barge is worth about 40,000 which is what he paid for it. As for how much I have spent on it I haven't. Got a clue as all bills that I contributed to came out of the joint account. And he made a point of putting all orders in his name.

Just a best guess - given what you contributed to the account itself
