Fibglass over ply is about right.



Assuming that price is a mistake, is that an extra 2 zero's???

44c, The 48c is definitely up there at the moment, Bob did let me know he is working on another new design this year a little longer so the 50C will be retired. The 48c already has some changes to reduce build time. You practice what you preach as your galley is absolutely awesome. I will have to go...

Had to laugh when I saw your example about glass. I actually work for a glass manufacturer, not to give it away, but there is only one in Aus. I don't work with the product but in IT, but have been around long enough to know a fair bit or people that know it. Generally glass is sold in m2, so your p...

Some great responses so far guys. I have noticed that in some of the cost estimates the prices seemed to jump in a non linear fashion as the length increased. Not that I have a good idea for the costs of operating, but there was an article in Blue Water Cruising that discussed monthly costs of cruis...

Fusion is pre-molded components isn't it? Haven't actually looked at the costs around them, sort of assumed they would be more than I wanted to spend, plus I think I want longer. Need to get to boat shows to see how big they are for real. I guess the fitout is the most visible component of the build...

I am currently 35 and wanted to do this (live aboard and see the world) while I am still young. (Wasn't that long ago that 35 was old) Generally looking at around 50', so far...
