Re: The economics of sailing around the world

Capta, we lived on not much than $1000 a month a few years ago not including insurance but this was with the boat in very good shape and not being in parts of the world where we wanted to travel inland. Also costs of entry into certain countries can kill a budget. Australia was more than $500 and Panama and Ecuador were more. Costs have gone up ... a lot.

Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
