is just that, a 24 mile rader, and all the electronics
The cost, my gosh, the boat was a clear 100k to start, and the electronic package the first time was around 20k.. the first retro-fit I'm thinking was around 30K with the electronics, watermaker
, new running rigging
, solar and the wind charger
went out for a year and returned to spend another 50K I figure, with Autohelm
(raymarine) smart pilot, bottom job and new sails
, and a few extras..
out for another year and back to install a new reffer, stove, and turned the quarterberth into a pantry, new tanks
, pumps, and plumbing
, and have recently replaced all standing rigging
........ Maybe over the last five years, maybe 250K.
But its where we want it and the money
was there to do the work as we sold our home, our rental, and a piece of property we had..
Understand its taken me better than 30 years investing in property to make this change. we had all property paid for and were at the poing where we were going to build on the property we owned when we decided to give it all up and go cruising,,,
We havent looked back sence.................
