    Yes it’s amazing to see numbers like this for small skiffs that sell from between $25,000.00 to $70,000.00 each. I have built by myself 62 different boats over time and about 60 more training my employees along side building boats and then have overseen another 320 Boats in my company before selling out. Since then another 2,000 boats have been built to my designs at least not including copies and now home built ones. So It could be more $ gross but unfortunately not in my pocket.

    Yes the math even seems to be conservative: $ 60,000,000.00 / (62 + 60 + 320 + 2,000 = 2,442 boats) = $ 24,570.02 average per piece.

    Since both the total number of boats and their average price is probably higher than included in this calculation, the till to date total built value is probably higher as well. Now to get some more of it in your pocket in the future . . :)

    Hi everyone, the Hogfish Maximus has just anchored in Neah Bay Washington state after a 31 day singlehanded passage from Hilo Hawaii. Hogfish is going on the hard in Bellingham Washington next week for the winter as I have 3 boatbuilding projects to do.
    She has logged 12,000 miles from my homebase in the Bahamas to here now totaling 38,000 sea miles crossing the Atlantic Ocean both ways and now the Pacific as far south as Easter Island and up to here.
    Complete building CAD plans are available for her design if wanting for a modest fee.
    She’s proven to be a very capable sea boat with never ever giving us a bit of worry.
    But remember.....people sail boats places, boats don’t sail people places.
    See you next season on my way to Alaska C5E9AD12-C424-482E-BA6E-081A73D64991.jpeg 1A684103-2A48-47A9-A4A1-6956CD0EFA63.jpeg 787F5B56-8727-406D-8243-0D3EFEEBD438.jpeg FFEA1F7D-8644-4AD4-AB7E-FF84A976AA74.jpeg
