"GE’s Vscan ultrasoubnd is currently priced at $7,900 per unit."
About the same thing that a PC or Mac with a laser printer ($4000 alone) cost circa 1985, in 1985 dollars.
And what would you be willing to pay the man who could bring one around to check your rudder
, if you were....in an offshore race
? Or island hopping? Or maybe just checking up while commissioning?
$8000/50 weeks, a paltry $400 per week for one year and the thing is paid for. (Paltry, yeah.<G>) Being the only surveyor
or shop in town that has one...Priceless?
I wonder if the local hospital would notice if one of their clunky old GE portable xray wagons was taken out for cleaning
every night, as long as it came back nice and shiny in the morning? <VBG>
