Re: Questions about plans?
If you are very careful in your purchases, use marine ply (fir), and shop for the cheapest resin, like RAKA or similar, you should be able to built the hull for about 1600 bucks....maybe 24oo if you're not so careful with your money....and that is wood, glass, resins and paint. Fully finished, less your labor, but with the steel centerboard, spars and sails you can expect about 4500 bucks or if your sloppy with expenses maybe $6500....that's no trailer or outboard....no tools, no shop and no beer. That's current U.S. type figures that I'll use.....or I could build it in Thailand for half that and spend the rest of the money in shipping costs and go sailing in 60-90 days.....but that's spending the money all at once....DIY and you spend a few bucks at a time and have the joy of nicking your fingers and getting high on the paint, cursing at the cat (or dawg) and sweeping the garage.
