Re: How Expensive is the Virgin Islands to Live on Board ?

HighFly - I have a watermaker and don't use my engine much (about 30 minutes a day to get into and out of anchorages) or the genset (1 hour every 3 days for battery charging and making water) so my diesel goes a long way and I won't dock for months at a time - it is a chore docking singlehanded so the watermaker is worth the price tag for me.

It is possible to live frugally even in the BVI/USVI _but_ I have met a number of cruisers whose dream it was to cruise around the Caribbean and they finally made it to discover that their cruising kitty wasn't sufficient to actually enjoy areas that they now can sail to.
