I agree, but I have gone from 1,500.00 - 1,800.00/ month in build mode for 4 years (not including rent "dry or wet") to around 100.00 to 150.00/month when the vessel is complete (almost done) maintenance and stuff. I do however have to admit trips and diesel can add up if traveling, but hey that is what we got the boat for.

My note is: a finished boat (Or mostly finished boat cost 1/10 the amount in $$$$$$ as the work in progress costs not counting the labor) so from a cash flow point of view the finished boat is a deal. (see Buds site for options in this area)

The up side to a project boat is that you can get exactly what you want, where you want, it how you want it (least ways, if you are skilled in the application).

I leave with the following two thoughts.
1.) would I build a boat again NO!
2.) would I rather have a new factory finished boat ALSO NO! my boat is set up nicely. I have what I want.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
