what''''s the weekly cost of sails?
Most of us are used to thinking that it costs us money when we use the engine to get somewhere, but if we use the wind it''s free.
Considering how much sails cost and how long they last, that''s not really true.
I''m curious to see what people say the weekly cost of sails are.
Let''s say you had a 37ft cruising sailboat and you lived the cruising lifestyle year after year (sailing to a new port every few days).
Every few years, you will need to replace a sail or two, so if you amortize that chunk of money over the years that it lasted, how much would you be paying per week for all the sails you use?
