Living in the west we don't have a ton of layout boats around here. Getting one shipped from the Great Lakes region will be expensive in addition to the actual cost. My question is, has anyone done any sort of cost comparison of what it costs to build a boat vs buying a manufactured one? Just curious if it would be worth the effort to try and build a boat (summer time project next year) or just buy one. Thoughts? Anyone done it and have an opinion on building?
