Re: Real Cost

During the forty-three years that we have lived aboard I've seen slip rates rise from $50/month to $500/month; however, everything ese has gone up by ten fold also. You'll hear a great variety of cost from liveaboard cruisers, but "do-it-yourself" rules. Throughout all our decades of liveaboard cruising we have had more descretionary income than our colleagues with the same income who live in houses. That said, I'm sure there are many who don't deal as well with the mechanics and tasks of maintaining a boat with little costs. I know of people that spend thousands for what I accomplish with a few hundred. You're an engineer! ....so, you don't need to pay someone else to figure it out!
