Asked from the Heart of Darkness study pack

The manager repeatly questions Marlow about the boat repairs. In frustration Marlow states some months, no doubt. At this point Marlow hasn't even seen the boat so how could he give an estimate on how long it will be before the boat is repaired. The manager then states - some months, Well let us say three months before we can start. Yes. That ought to do the affair.

Honestly, Marlow does not know. Trying to find Kurtz and then contain him make a prediction on time difficult for Marlow. As he has not inspected the boat he is in no real position to comment on an accurate finishing date.
