Re: An idea for a new voyaging sailboat
With the number of existing boat builders going out of business these days, I'm surprised anyone would even consider doing something like this. The simplest tooling for a 40 foot boat would be somewhere in the 500,000 to 700,000 range. Shop expenses, tools, personell - figure a minimum of 1.5 mil to get started.
