Then the next factor to consider is what quality of materials and
finish are you considering? This can affect the hull cost by 100% or
The third factor is that Watervan would require a fairly expensive
motor (90 hp) and trailer and enough power to tow it all.
Watervan also has a fair ammount of equipment and furnishings
inside, plumbing, controls, electrical, much like a Class B
motorhome, or a tandem wheeled travel trailer - which it could
double as - on longer trips especially.
I would take a wild guess that I would like to have about 15-20K set
aside to get a good quality finished product with a reliable 4-
stroke motor and tandem wheeled trailer.
A guy like Bruce Hallman could likely do it for half that and have
twice as much fun in doing it:-)
Fax PCB&F and enquire if you are at all serious.
