Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

I do not consider myself financially wealthy (by U.S. standards). I have also chosen the frugal route when it comes to financing my sailing dream. But it comes at a serious cost when it comes to PATIENCE. There are so many little projects, and I am trying to keep the maintenance costs under $200 per month. In a perfect world I could just dry dock it and start making calls to the canvas people, mechanics, etc. But it is all worth it on a nice breezy day.
