I'm glad you stuck with it. Sure project boats are going to cost more than you originally paid for it. But it isn't always about the money. Sometimes it is about sharing time with someone or working through your own demons as you work on the boat. In my case it was about learning how to fix things on a boat and to push my personal DIY limits.

My first boat was a project boat that my father helped me work on. The boat itself wasn't a classic or anything special, but shortly after we launched my father was diagnosed with lung cancer and died three months later. The memories alone were worth the time and money that I put into the boat.
