Suggested Board: How Much Stuff Costs!

OK. So here's what we need to know around here. How much will this cost. About how much:

- replacement for atomic 4
- toilet (head is prepped, no toilet)
- furler
- removal or paint over of nonskid pieces that are *all over* this boat and are
brown. (mentioned this one before ... sorry for the duplication).

I can take it. Truly I can.

Are you doing the work yourself or paying someone else to do it ?

We just put up a roller furling by Alado. Here's their address: Alado Nautica USA Reefing and Roller Furling Systems Home Page

You'll find this system to be a lot cheaper than the others. We got the A1 for our Catalina 27, which was $780. In addition to the system, we also had to buy a new genoa halyard and a furling line, which was another $100. We also spent $400 on a used furling genoa. So total cost was about $1300

The marketing materials say the installation will take couple hours for a single person, but in truth it took my friend and I about 5-6 hours. But we had absolutely no prior exposure to furling systems, and we tried to be safe by spending a lot of time planning ahead.

Took it out for a first sail today and everything went very well. Seems like a solid system.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Nice work. I'm willing to guess there will be a pretty big bill even if you DIY. If you don't DIY, it will be astronomical!

Thanks everyone!

Huge props to Tommay! Our engine space (please forgive the "girl" langauage here lol) is totally clean & prepped ... Dh is the talented, capable, can do almost anything half. He not only does this stuff but loves it. Me? Hmmm, what am I going to be good for? Wow it's really challenging to not get into gender stereotypes here!

I went to the Women's Sailing Association Conference and took the wind workshop but wouldn't have touched the diesel engine class. Hey, at least they weren't offering "design your cabin on a dime!"

Ready for the grand total now, before we take delivery of the boat (we put a deposit on her).

PS Thanks, too, to dboy. Nice work. We'll look into that system. (Get a little pang looking at your location - we had some great years in the Bay Area ... sigh).
