So how much does it cost for a roller furling, bimini top, new rigging, anchors, electronics, solar and wind power, repairing spft spots etc. I am looking at boats around 25 to 28 ft long and Ive noticed that boats for under $10000 usually seem stripped of gear vs a $15000 dollar boat( $15000 is about as high as I can afford if I ever actually want to set sail with a kitty ). Any comments are appreciated.
Roller Furler $1700
New Standing rigging wire: $300
New Standing rigging tangs, toggles, turnbuckles, chainplates $1000
Anchors vary widely in price. Chain and rode have pretty established price ranges.
Electronics are just as expensive as you want them to be.
Minimum size solar panel install $100
Wind Power minimum $500
Repairing soft spots is nearly free. 1 sheet marine ply $60, some fabric $10, a gallon of resin $40.
The problem is that it is a giant PITA to do.
If you are planning on going offshore, it might be a good idea to buy a sound hull and spars, because prudence would suggest you replace everything else anyway!
