I recently spoke with a local fisherman here in Kodiak for quite a spell. we were both doing laundry and loudly, visiting among the hum of, dropping coins and the rumble of circular machinery.
He made a statement regarding cost analysis that I have been trying to finalize in my mind. After 25 years experience fishing in Alaska, I feel his statement is accurate and credible.
Regarding boat projects… Add up your time and expenses. Make your best estimate.
1. If your not in a hurry. Then Double money and triple the time.
2. If you are in a hurry. Then Triple the money and double the time.
Wise words indeed.
Regarding this reality. Steven has taken to “Setting up shop” at the top of the dock. Selling everything we don’t want or need for the voyage.
Today Steven sold some power tools. those funds were diverted to Empiricus. After Stevens cut, of course.
I love this scenario. Because on the water, you don’t need “Stuff”. You just need to keep moving.
