Re: Real Cost

So basically, what are people seeing for say slip cost? $10 - $12 per foot per month

maintainence? 10% of the replacement cost of the boat per year.

incidentals related to keeping the boat running? I dont know, see above.

Living costs compared to an apartment? about the same? more? less? never done more than a week but probably a little less. After all you don't need a lawnmower.

Fuel? Traveling I know i'll use some... but being a sail boat how bad can it be? Its nothing, in the big picture.

Anything I'm leaving out? Tons of stuff I am sure.

Now-- onto my favorite part - the unsolicited advice!!!OK, I like your taste but --911's suck. They suck. And 20 years does not make a retirement unless you are Bill Gates. Not even close.

Get a GTI. They effing rock. Hatchback for your gear.

Furthermore, I highly recommend a Triumph Bonneville T100. You can't go wrong with that bike.
