Re: can I afford to continue sailing

[QUOTE=sailordave;937220]Boats are a totally ridiculous expenditure that cannot be justified on the level of finances alone.

Having my boat has saved me over $240,000 in rent for the time I have lived aboard, not counting the cost of many Pacific crossings and local cruising, plus all accomodations ( compared to hotels) and the difference between cooking my meals on board vs eating out of restaurants, a highly justifiable expense , on "The level of finances alone."
