Re: prices prices, what are they thinking
I've seen a few like that - total restorations where the mouldings are about the only thing remaining of the original boat. In truth they ARE worth big bucks - compare them to new boats of similar sizes.
Having said that though - no-one is likely to pay it. Why don't fully and properly restored boats have a market like restored cars? People will pay 7 figures for many restored cars.
A few years ago there was a conversion very much like lackey's daysailor Triton conversion on YW - asking $175K as I recall.
Lackey just did a total remake of a Tartan 34 - how much is that boat worth? What would a new 34' Tartan go for?
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
