Re: The economics of sailing around the world

Can't fault the OP for having a dream and trying to feel out the cost of it. As stated by many, others experience will not necessarily work for everyone.

I believe a better approach is to figure out what you can come up with for funding and then determine the boat/lifestyle that will afford and decide if its acceptable.

While cruising can be less expensive than living ashore for us, I don't want to go on an extended cruise, if I have to live on austerity to do it. You may feel differently.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
