The Boat is Ready

The boat is now ready (by definition). Of course there is still a lot of work to do. But remaining work, maintainance work and improvement work already overlap. That's why I decided after two days of successful sailing on the Elbe river

Finished! It's done!


For interested self-builders I have drawn up my working hours and the costs.
It is easy to see that you do not save money when building your own boat  - quite apart from the unpaid working hours! But one end up with a really unique boat.


The fit-lines show that building Träholm was no hard work and not very expensive in average. It took just about 1 hour and 7 minutes per day at costs of 23 € per day

Cost allocation table. It may come as a surprise to one or the other how high the percentage of building site rent can be. About 19 %!
