But that was material cost.
You then had to spend several years building it.

To buy a new one off the shelf, if you could, would cost closer to $500k?
And that 8 mile run would consume maybe 5 litresof fuel, less( possibly near zero) if we sailed or used the tide
I have no doubt
But the ability to do that did come at a cost.

The thing is, I don't try to pretend this is typical.
Nor do I, far from it.
I think we have both demonstrated we are very much atypical
