$1000 is a boat buck. That's why marine products are 1000x as expensive as their lubberly counterparts.

I have to agree about the less than 27' thing. My boat is a 26'.

Look at some of these figures:

Complete Repower: $1800 and 1 hour labor.
New Mainsail: $1000
New rigging wire: $200
Varnish brightwork: $30

Haulouts are cheaper, laydays, moorage, fuel...

Yea I don't think I need a boat 2' longer. Being able to stand up, and still save money, is a good combo.
