I spent about $70 bucks on fiberglass clothe and bronze oar locks and sockets from Duckworks.
Today I spent about $50 on paint from the local hardware store. I already had the primer so that cost was avoided. I am sure I will need a little more paint before launch. I have varnish, I think, so I hope to avoid that expense.
The thing that seems funny is that it is already a boat, it will float, but it won't last as long or look as pleasing until this stuff gets put on. It is the preservation and vanity that cost the most. Very interesting.
I guess it could be worse.
