Wasn't a 'Fuzzle fan the first time around but the first couple of paragraphs indicate a couple that is maturing, living a more normal budget and having a respect for what they are doiing they may not have had the first time.
$90k for the boat they now have looks great, overall. The list of things they invested in look smart and necessary. The only thing I would question is the autopilot
install but I can see it with labor + parts
and if they decided not to install their own gear
, so what? Machts nichts to me.
I am warming up to these folks and wish them well.
So the new answer on what I should spend for a 41 foot cruising boat is about $90k?
I reckon you can do it cheaper and morre expensive. The "Bums" a probably near the median in terms of pay others vs. do it yourself.
Good on them for getting out there again.
