Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

This remains a very productive thread. In catching up on posts and due to recent experiences I note one of the key variables is how you cruise. Even in the sub set of east coast snow birders there seems to be further subsets.
Some go up and down from George town
Some go up and down from N.E. or mid Atlantic to eastern Caribe.
Some bring the boat down and use a mooring with management contract and fly up and down keeping a residence on land or pay for land storage and use a northern land rental up north during hurricane season.
With each land costs go up and boat costs go down or vice a versa.
With each boat costs vary depending on miles traveled.
The thread title included the word cruising. To me cruising means traveling not stationary live aboard in a different place. It would be helpful in understanding people's posts if they defined miles traveled and cruising ground.
