    Hi everyone,

    My first post here, but I've spent countless nights reading every post in the awesome stability-threads on this forum.

    After reading some books recommended in this forum and started designing a few sailing boats - I've come to the conclusion that I probably do not have enough time to build and design my own blue water sailing boat. The second option is to modify or finish someone abandoned project to save some time.

    Currently looking into this project, a Brilliant 41 designed by Knud Reimers.

    1) I'm trying to estimate the cost to buy all the remaining gear, are you aware of anyone who have made a cost-breakdown for a similar style build in spreadsheet or similar?

    2) For you that have built glass-fiber boats, what is your opinion on this build?

    Best, Joel
