Re: $3000/mo cruising budget
I know I'm not supposed to post here b/c I'm one of the unwashed masses, but I just wanted to say not all yacht clubs are created equal. I have belonged to two so far. No sailor whites and no $12 burgers. But you can use the club BBQ if you bring your own propane, and if you want your boat hauled and mast taken down, then you better pitch in and help your neighbour do the same, b/c that's the only way things get done, no matter how "successful" one is.
We have millionaires, we have people on social assistance, and we have plenty of folks in between. We work together, and we play together. Incredible, eh?
If you make it to Newfoundland check out the Lewisporte Yacht Club. You'll feel right at home. Great place. Good to leave boat over winter.
