    we get glimpses of what it costs to build that boat... wonder if its resale would recoup the build cost.

    for example, casting was 60k, the motor is 97k, just the oak for the ribs was easily 200k to buy, cut, mill and deliver from Georgia.

    or the tl;dr, is that a million dollar boat?

    Yep, 66 feet of it!

    My neighbors don't seem to mind my mess. I try to keep a good selection of the normal tools around...including shipyard equipment as one does.

I was so looking forward to the "tire pile" one on the list. As I said, my neighbors are mighty peaceful-like....
    Lol, I've got two new permanent neighbors and they both have cool cars. The Karens are self exterminating slowly but surely. There's certain forces you just don't go up against.

    It was like wow I don't remember an HOA being in the contract when I bought my house and you people really do understand this isn't a rental, right?
