20.000 EUR = 26748 USD (today)
Thanks, FMG_V6, for validating my suspicions.

That is a piece of history - another thank you for sharing the link.

This may seem OT, but bear with me, I'll get there by hook or by crook.. this wartime nautical history prompted me to re-visit one of my favorite boat design stories: that of the Vietnam-era PBR (Patrol Boat, River) - made famous in pop culture primarily via "Apocalypse Now" ('79).

PBR history/dev

The hull development outlined above (fiberglass, Styrofoam) and the PBR's balsa wood topside were especially notable. The powerplant was, unsurprisingly, Detroit Diesel, while the fully rotatable water jets, which gave the craft unparalleled maneuverability - with some penalty in efficiency - were manufactured by ..wait for it.. the Jacuzzi Brothers. Did I mention that I repaired the exhaust system on a Ferrari owned by one of the brothers in the 80's ? The world can seem so very small at times.
