Looking to BUY Great Alaskan
« on: July 27, 2020, 11:44:43 AM »
Hi,

I have been following this forum for quite a while, bought plans a while back but life has not allowed me to start a build yet. I would like to put out there that in the near future I would be interested in buying a GA (the right one) from someone who is selling for whatever reason. Would be most interested in complete or near complete boats.

I like the combination of strength, simplicity, ability to trailer, fishing/camping do-it-all boat.

Thanks!

Brian

Id suspect there is a minimum of $40k in labor on a GA?

Yes, no doubt there is a large amount of blood, sweat, tears and love in this project! I have been too busy to start, and look to be about another year or more away the way life is right now, so I thought I would put it out there for any who have built one and find themselves at some point in that position of needing or wanting to sell.

If the economy kicks the bucket I may have time to build... so who knows what happens! Lemons and lemonade... :)

Great minds think alike ... plans sales have picked up as a result of the virus :)   Others must have more free time now, so why not build a boat?  Afterall, if you go bankrupt and lose the house, it's nice to know the Great Alaskan has room for  a galley, head, and queen-size bed in the cuddy!  You can always live in it instead of the house, right?  :D :D :D

Brian, interesting the comment about plans sales... jet skis and outboards are in short supply, I guess a bunch of people decided to get out on the water!
