Re: Micro Budget Cruising - Hidden Costs

If I subtract beer and cigars we get by just fine on $1000 a month; as long as we stay away from big city marinas.

Here in Alaska we found a harbor that charges $200 per YEAR for mooring in a slip. Another that was free to tie up at the town float for an unlimited time. If you are willing to rough it a little cruising can be cheap. Necessities don't cost that much. It is the luxuries that are expensive. From June 2011 to June 2012 we averaged about $2500 a month cruising in Hawaii. Now, less than half that in Alaska, settled in for the winter in a harbor slip with power and water. (And loving it)

Now in Petersburg. Alaska
