I agree. It's good that you're trying to be realistic and estimate your costs, but too much thought brings other thoughts and next thing you know, you're still on land looking at other people's sails.

Some years you will spend little to nothing beyond what it costs for fuel and your living expenses. Other years you might spend three times what you think you'd have to because something major breaks.

I also think your fuel costs are way too high unless you're going to motor most of the time.
