after seeing the 'new' Anarchy on the front page, I wondered how much it costs to get a new boat for SD beercan:


so I looked for FT10 rebuild costs - found some on SA from last year:

Its worth single figures 5-6k

2nd hand alloy boom with rigging $1k

2nd hand set of sails $5k

New sails $17k

Rudder $3k

Bottom job $3k

That's still 35k on the cheap end with an alloy boom! Albeit with shiny bottom & sails.

---now compare that to current, ready to sail prices of $35-44K, and Scot got a nice deal given the sweat equity he put into it. And the fleet now has another viable race boat!
