So, my party has discovered ancient doccuments on how to build elementally powered conveyences. They have convinced their benevolent employer to take them on as a partner, they provide some of the financial backing and the plans, he provides craftsman and the spellcasters required.

Now, how long does it take? If we say the cost is 92k gp, how much of that is the magic of the ship and how much is the material cost for the ship? If a longship is 10k gp, could we assume that the rest is the magic item cost? The party is hounding me on this and I'd like to be able to give them a realistic RAW answer. Any help is appriciated.

I've determined the DC to make a boat is going to be 20 and the spellcraft DC to make the magic is going to be 25...CL15+5 base+5 missing req. Both can be easily satisfied. How many times can one be aided for the bonus on a craft check?

Absolute minimum time would be 82/92 days...depending on if a portion of base cost is materials for ship.
