We haven't had 100% inflation in 4 years but you bring up a valid point.

The $100 limit was arbitrary, easy to remember and reflects my idea of low-buck- a handful of $20 bills, or less than 2 hours labour at most boatyards. That was true ion 2008 and is still true today.

But, i think there is a whole realm of "mid-buck" projects that could be explored.
VK, start the "Mid Buck Projects" thread for $200 boatwork...or maybe to be more inclusive, $200-500 boatwork projects.

Kick it off, brother!
