There is no link - I would really like to see the film.
Interestingly the wooden boat ads tell you no power - just quant -- I wonder how many people know what a quant is or how to use it.
A wooden boat at the moment costs about 1000 USD a foot, so the 300 pounds is probably about 24000 pounds at the moment. Of course a 30 foot modern boat is going to cost about 300000.
The problem with comparing costs is the technological change. I like the way of using the average annual wage as a cost comparison. I read about it in that great Auction Mystery series that was on TV from the UK.
