I selected renew simply because of the eye watering cost to buy a new one in New Zealand
To answer the question how much:
I have made a spreadsheet using the wave diagram of all the part numbers I think I need to get the boat to close to new. I went to backyardboats.com and simply created a shopping list to cost it all out.
I will buy the bits as funds allow (I have to fly under the wifes expense tracking radar). Just now Ive ordered some fittings and a new rudder. I shattered the bottom casting of my old style rudder at the weekend.
Next on the list is a complete set of standing rigging & I will take the opportunity to get a club style set up w. shroud adjusters. Then hopefully a new sail as Ive already torn and repaired the (presumably) 15 year old one I am using.
Unfortunately in NZ we are not well serviced, so I must buy from your part of the world. I gringe with envy when I read posts about how little you have to pay for new / used cats!
Does anybody know of a good online store, many will not ship outside of the US / Canada? I like these guys:http://www.backyardboats.com/
