it was not expensive at the time and the canal all said and done after refund of deposit was around 800 for a 30 footer

heard that went way up a few years ago too

bummer
anywhoo
Our cost for the canal was not much more than that. The cost increase for >50' was huge; not so bad below.but still an increase.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
