RE: The real costs of boat ownership

Hey Dude,
There's tons and tons and tons more to a boat than engine and hull. Wiring, fuel tanks, electronics (or lack of), steering, plumbing, exhaust ect* ......... almost forever. Been there done that* ...* refit that is. What one wants to do is get a boat that the last guy pumped tons of money into. Or better yet several owners. That's the biggest cost of having an older boat** ..* getting her up to the standard your needs require. But on the other hand that's about the only way of getting the boat you really want** ... it's a bit like building a new boat out of old bones.
