Costings for my project

Just thought I would share this for prospective new boat owners.

Essentially, what started out as the purchase of a cheap fun run about for exploration has turned into a much bigger project. Don't get me wrong here as I am not moaning about it (yet) as I could have saved funds by being content with what I initially purchased.


But that's not me as pretty much every motorbike I bought I modified to varying degrees. In the world of motorbikes I splashed out £10k on the engine of my Buell S1 ....only to find that a lack of cooling to rear v cylinder constantly buggered the rear piston. Best bike I bought was a 1998 Yamaha R1...already kitted out for race spec....wow, that was a bit of kit.

As a heads up to prospective rib/boat owners I feel that major funds can be saved by thinking about what your requirements are and purchasing a complete package to suit. I also suggest to purchase 'off season' as there appears to be a wider pool of boats to choose from.

I must admit that even though it is costing me here, it is an interesting learning curve and that is something I value.

You need to add another 10 quid for a crystal ball as we need one due to lack of before and after pictures

Scary isn't it. I don't cost it if it's for me. I'd cry.

I keep a mental tally of the big ticket items, but never factor in every nut, bolt, sika, etc.
