Yes mate, $65 so far with motors in and a room full of shiny **** and a shed full of enough build stuff to get her in the water.

Banking on $120, so that should take care of electric's , cold, minimul electronics, cooker/bbq, solar etc

To Cat Man Do
My boatbuilding trick is to try to do something every day.
Doesn't matter how little.
It is surprising how many times I have come to the boat just to do a little fiddle or tidy up and stayed for hours sorting things out.
I also let myself get tired and be slack if I want to.

My projected times were/are....

When I started looking at building I ended up with a projection of four to ten thousand hours for a 42' boat. This is based on my experience in building 32' and a 21.5' yachts.
The project became unrealistic when I calculated that I could only manage 5 hours/day. (Getting old) i.e. It was going to take me from three to eight years to get a boat going.
On my current boat I am projecting two thousand hours to get to seaworthy, starting with a boat (in poorish condition) in the water but with no fitout.
I figure I'll be sailing properly in fifteen months.
