I'm pretty sure that my bridgedeck cost less than $100 in materials. I can't say exactly how much the materials were since the epoxy, fiberglass, and plywood were bought for several different projects, as was the paint, masking tape and other materials used.

The total material were about 1/2 a sheet of 3/4" plywood; enough epoxy and fiberglass to coat said plywood and tie it into the cockpit—approximately four layers on top and three underneath; enough thickened epoxy to fillet the joints and to bed the top section of the bridgedeck; and paint—two coats plus two coats for non-skid.

Oh, yeah, had to buy a new deck fill for the fresh water tank, but that wasn't technically part of the new bridgedeck project IMHO... just ended up on the new bridgedeck.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
