Two books to get

Cost Conscious Cruiser by the Pardeys

Shrimpy by Shane Acton

Two different approaches to sailing on a small budget and more importantly both written by people who 'Walked the walk'.

As to costing you money to enter other than the Bahamas [$150 if <35feet]the entry taxes and crusing permits in the Caribbean are reasonable with the French Islands leading the way with ZERO cost to enter and cruise. [ Mind you in St Barts it is an arm and a leg to anchor!]
