    Im not sure everyone on here would agree with your assesment of all my posts. But yes, we constantly learn everyday, or at least should do!

    Find an enclosed warehouse. You will have to transport it there but if Washington prices are near Oregons figure $300.00 a month plus electric and heat. Now you have the right environment to do your changes and repairs and be warm doing them. Todays market is good for the consumer and transport close in should be less than $2,000.00

    Are we asking for "everyone" to agree? I´m fine with the few Pro´s like Guillermo, you, Par, to mention some.
    And I do learn nearly everytime I contribute (or better, got corrected by pro´s), thats what we are looking for!?

    "..Are we asking for "everyone" to agree?.."
    No, I certainly don't, nor does it bother me. I just provide my own personal opinion/advise accordingly. Whether it is "palatable" consumption is not part of a design brief. Only cost and performance! Personal attacks etc for being anonymous etc are totally irrelevant....only the question at hand is important, not my gallery!

    Yepp, cost and performance..... a harder issue these days. Even I have to stretch sometimes in some cases.
    And palatable... I was never, I like to be frank (sometimes unpolite), `cos I cannot remember my lies of yesterday ´till tommorow.

    Gday apex
    A 40 HP diesel engine in Australia is 15k, A 300HP diesel is up towards 60k now if your a fisherman you dont want to putt out to the shelf at 4 to 6 knots. I would say my original pricing was correct as you have stated in one of your quotes. You cant teach an old dog new tricks can you apex.

    Don't buy your engines in AU. I can ship engines from Portland, Oregon, USA
    for $500.00 each so my estimate still stands. I only post here to give proper
    and current advise. I seek no business. You are way high on your costs. Thats all--no disrepect intended. Best, Stan

    I was looking recently for a good yard in Asia to quote for a 53m and 38m crew boat we have designed. Didn't know about you guys....i'll keep you in mind for future reference.

    Sorry Macka, Ohare did not ask for prices in Australia nor in Burma to say that first. And I did not try to teach an old dog, I corrected a completely wrong statement. And yours above again is wrong because it is not related to the original question.
    We do´nt let fisherman putter around at 4 to 6 knots be shure.
    Regards
    Richard

    im going to have to agree with McFarlane here, it would be much cheaper and easier to buy a second hand boat and spend 100k on it to make it your own. to get a new 40 foot boat for 200k i cant imagine that the quality of the finished product to be any good at all. by buying a second hand boat and doing it up you will still get the boat you want, thats the way to go for sure.:D
