Fuel seems very high, unless you are going to be out and motoring a lot...or are including slip electical in that.

Rigging escrow seems low to me...unless you are going to do it all yourself. Similarly the bottom work is about half what I have seen up your way, unless it too is DIY.

You will analyze your self right of a boat, if you are basing the decision on $$$ per XXXX. There are several threads here on $$ per sail, $$per month, $$....and none of them can be rationally made.

About right for the rest of the stuff, you may be able to save a bit here and there...but it will wash out eventually.

All the best.
