Hey Chris, we wish you the best. We are about 2 yrs away from doing the same thing. Our plan has been in the works for about 5 yrs. Our son graduates from high school in 2013 than we are out of here. We have a projected date of late summer 2013.

It will be interesting to us how you guys manage cost. For us figuring a reasonable budget is a challenge. There are a lot of varying opinions out there. Of coarse everyone will be different and lifestyle has a lot to do with it also. Still it doesn't hurt to hear from those who are actually out there, not just talking about it.

Nice, congrats and thanks! The cost thing is a mystery to us as well, we're just gonna see how it goes.

Making the boat as low cost to operate (simple systems, nothing complicated - no furler, fridge, motor, water pump etc etc..) was a huge consideration from the get go. Without going into the ideology of sailing preferences and beliefs, we tried our best to eliminate as many "failure" points (and things to maintain with $$) as we could.

I will definitely be commenting on costs as we go, as this was such a huge deal in our "design" of the perfect cruising boat for us. Keep in mind, all the "savings" are post refit. We figured we had to build the right boat for us, and no matter how you slice it - it costs a lot to build your boat to make passage safely. That's not an area to cut corners on imo.

She'd better save us some $$ at this point, as the tap is now pretty dry...

After a few years of intense inpatient therapy and heavy medication, I should be ready to do another one...

Thanks

She looks good. I'll hand it to you, chris, you did it.
You surprised me.
After reading where you started (it would be easier if you hadn't deleted your posts,)
here, a year and a half ago, going from selling the boat

Tough thing to do... a sad rant

To talking about refitting the boat
Is this possible on around 10k?

To actually getting her in the water.

Well done.

You had all the hallmarks of being another no-money dreamer adding another stripped derelict to the back of boatyard, but you actually followed through. Good on ya.
