How much are boats?
Is all depends on witch kind of boats you are looking for, fresh water or salt water, Motor, Jet Drive, In-board, Out-board. You also have to keep in mind the prices for the safety gear(flares, PFD's, etc).
because the crewmen were rushing to get people on the boats they didnt know how much time they had to save people. also the crewmen that were loading the boats didnt believe the capacity of 65 was right they thought the boats would sink, therefore plunging the people in the boats into the icy water, but they could have been filled to the full capacity.
It can be any color the owner wants. Boats are generally black or white. This is traditional. In northern climes boats were painted black to absorb heat, and in southern climes they were white to reflect heat. This doesn't matter much anymore now that most boats are fiberglass or metal. With wood boats it is still an important consideration because wood shrinks or expands depending on how much moisture is in the wood and temperature…
