Construction Costs
Rybka    

Cost Of The Hull: $3628.80
This can be made cheaper by using exterior ply. Not bad for a 5.5 metre boat.

Cost Of The Bits That Stick On The Hull: $4098.40
Ok, I spent more on the bits that go inside than on the hull itself - everything is 316 stainless steel and I have everything. This could have been only $1000 if I had wanted to, but I didn't, so sue me


Cost Of The Consumables: $865.05
Paint brushes etc. Can't really get around this.

Cost Of The Big Bits: $4708.00
These costs are so easily lessened - I have a big GPS and dual sensor fishfinder - The trailer and engine can be easily obtained from the Trading Post.

I had to buy my tools as well - you may not have to. Even though I spent $15,500 on my boat, I could have if I had wanted too, only spent $8000.00
