You can't just turn cents into BB, and modern terms is very misleading due
I would suggest that you try and find sites that give prices in medieval
times. (Domesday book is one source).
Again, if you follow from the contruction rules I submitted, price is based
on the cost of labor, since the trees are "free".

Subject: [PnP] Progress
Well finally making some progress in ships.
With sites recommended by Burton I was able to find the data I believe will
help in the long run.
A Board Foot is the basic unit for timber and ship construction.
I foun a pdf where a Galley requires 300 heacre of oak forest and
Based on that I was able to come up with finally a conversion factor
of 747.5 (roughly) BF in 1 Hectacre. Based on this I could determine
it takes 315445 BF to build the galley (basic hull structure).
Another site I determined a BF is 93 cents in modern terms. So let's say
93 BB in pnp. Course this vary by supply/demand and port, etc. But using
this comes up with a value of 29,336 and change in Gold to just build the
hull structure in wood (not including Nails :)).
This also jives with other materials I've found on costs for a galley.
Using this material and others I can then base a system for construction
costs on these factors. So its progress.
