Jezz Blue operates leisure and adventure cruises to the nearby islands. An adventure cruise boat was acquired on 1 October 2012. Given below are details of cost to the separate parts of the boat and their estimated useful lives:

Adventure boat hull and decks, original cost $300,000, depreciation on straight-line basis (25 years)
Cabins and fittings, original cost $150,000, depreciation on straight-line basis (12 years) Engine system, original cost $100,000, depreciation on 40,000 hours useful life

As of 30 September 2020, no further additional capital expenditure had been incurred on the boat.

You were informed by the company that during the year ended 30 September 2020, the boat had experienced an extensive engine trouble which had cost the company a large loss of revenue and compensation to customers. The expired life of the engine system at 30 September 2020 was 30,000 hours. Due to this situation, the company has decided in early October 2020 to replace the boat’s engine at a cost of $140,000. The expected life of the new engine system was 50,000 hours and in the year ended 30 September 2021, the boat had used its engines for 5,000 hours.
At the same time as the engine system replacement, the company decided to upgrade the cabins plus fittings at a cost of $60,000 and repaint the boat’s hull and decks at a cost of $20,000. After the upgrade of the cabins and fittings, it was estimated that their remaining life was 5 years (from the date of the upgrade).

For the purpose of calculating depreciation, all the work on the boat can be assumed to have been completed on 1 October 2020. There are no residual values for all of them.

Calculate the carrying amount of Jezz Blue’s adventure boat at 30 September 2021. Also state the amounts which should be recognised as expenses for the year ended 30 September 2021.
