This Boating is a Blast...I love it

$456.00 to put the boat in the water, then pull it out...for on-water inspection
$792.00 Survey
$6,600 for a dock for 8 months
$1,200 to get the boat ready for launch
$1,050 for insurance
$150.00 to put the boat back in the water

Hmmm...time sailing thus far...10 minutes during survey. Cost per hour for sailing thus far: $20,748.00. OK, so I know the cost will go down...right? RIGHT?? Someone??

Wow, thats some expensive docking, even for Annapolis. 36' I presume (at going survey rates)? You can get a bit of a discount on the survey if surveyor only checks out the boat on shore (and you ask them nicely). You don't need another guy for the seatrial in my opinion.
Insurance is probably on the money, as are the lift fees. "Getting the boat ready to launch" is something you either pay for or do yourself.

That said, I spent about 10K over the last 2 years in general boat upkeep + dock fees + insurance etc. It comes with the territory, personally I enjoy spending on my boat the way I enjoy spending on close people (children etc) or may be more - boat does not talk back to me.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Uh, it looks like the $600 is year to date and covers about 25% of the year.

$1800 is about the same that I pay though I'm in one of the cheapest slips at our marina. To get across the way next to the pool would add about $500 more a year.

Ok, so here's my plan...

Sell everything, live aboard, get rid of the engine...too expensive. Eat peanut butter and jelly...drink Old Style beer, put the kids on e-bay (Ok, so I stole that last one)
