Cost for the boat above?

Really hard to calculate. some 5000-7000 hours of work totally. 5 tonns alloy. 20 big tanks of argon. maybe around 1 ton pine totally (incl. cutoff) 6 ton scraplead. 60.000 kw electricity. some tons of food (for volunteers)
+ lot of bruises, 1 crashed skull. and lots and lots of fun and tears:-)
