Your Micro Navigator"could" cost that much......it all depends
on what standard you want to build to ;-). My Micro cost a kitten's
hair over $6000.00 CAN. to build in 1993 and I've got the bills to
prove it. Sure,I also could have gotten a gold medal in"dumpster
diving" too had I really worked at it but I was;
a)too damned lazy.
b)too damned stupid
c)too much of a fraddy cat
d)too damned proud
I suppose any of the above could be made to "fit" but in truth
I really wanted a Micro YACHT and a vessel to try out my growing
inventory of woodworking skills.The logic being that any big time
booboos would not cost me an arm and a leg on such a small boat.
As I gradually assemble WINDERMERE, I lean heavily on the
experiences gained through the MICRO and catch myself sometimes about
to make another booboo just in ther nick of time.........I am glad I
did my MICRO the way I did.
It all boils down to what your end objective is with a self
made boat.C'est la vie!

I took to be FROST on the windshield.........
