All cost are in US dollars. Many of the things I picked up on Ebay. Some at Sailorman in Ft. Lauderdale, some at BOW. I tried to get them as inexpensively as possible! But....
The bilge pumps break down as follows:
o Bilge pumps are Rule
2000's I have four of them. 1 in each engine room 1 in each mid-hull. I got them for an average of $50 each. Total $200
o 40 feet of hose, almost 10 feet each. Total $30
o Auto/manual bilge switches ($20 each), 2 of those. Total $40
o 2 blue sea 15 amp panel switches to manually activate pumps $15 each. Total $30
auto float super swtiches. I forgot to include those in the estimate st of those
. $25 each, pluse $4 for the covers!
o Rule hose addapters to use 3/4 inch tubing. My through hulls are all 5/8 - 3/4 inch. I will replace them when I haul the boat out for the bigger hoses that the rule pumps will support. 4 total @ $4 each. I also used titanium hose clamps. I bought a bunch of them so I did not include the cost. But generally they were about $3 each, I used 4 on each pump
for a total of 16. Total approximate cost $64.
The actual cost was a something over $500 for every thing.
Ouch! Expensive, but the lack of proper bilge pumps was why one of the hulls went down necessitating a rather extensive refit. ($42,000 and counting).
The battery switches are Perko. One is a 360/600 amp 1-2 both or none. The other is a 450/800 amp on off switch. They were a little over kill. I got them at wholesale rates for just around $200. Yes, you can get these a lot cheaper, maybe something on the order of $60 for both. But the Perko's really look cool
Certain things I really have tried to be as frugal as possible. Other things I have said I'd rather not be someplace remote
and have this fail, so I have over engineered in some cases. As an example, I bought 2 new engines. If I were planing to do only local cruising, I probably would have rebuilt the flooded engine and done nothing to the other engine. Instead I installed two new engines and saildrives. Definately overkill! But, I shouldn't have any significant issues with them for the next 4000 run hours
. Worth the peace of mind.
Another note, the sails are a little more expensive than monohulls! The are fully battened sails, 6 of them plus 3 reef points instead of perhaps 2 for a monohull
. The full battens are about $600 for the hardware
. The extra reef is about $100. At least that is what has showed up in the all the estimates I have received. I decided to use the hardware
