Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Just once, and not for long. Five thousand of my new best friends were having a flash mob from the cruise ships.

What's that got to do with how and whether it has changed in the past decade? Everyplace changes. Especially when it goes from "way out there" to flash mobs.

How would you know if it's changed if you've only seen it one time?

Perhaps I have spies everywhere? And a webcam in your...Oh wait, you're not supposed to know about that one. (VBG)

I've got a long list of places that used to be open fields and now are full of tract housing. You think I need to go there to confirm there's been a change?

I was illustrating a point about what $3000/ month would buy on the Hudson. What is your point?

I was also illustrating a point as well... you quote that the guys voyaging on $500 would be met with criticism and malice anywhere they go but many are voyaging on vessels much larger and therefore taken as more a 'yacht' in the eyes of the so call CG and country bumpkin cops as you so mentioned... compared to the guys with little 20-22 foot boats talking about their plans... I merely mentioned if you have $3000/month to spend on your 22 foot boat... great! You get to enjoy the many benefits on the Hudson/local areas... but I doubt you'll be in the Keys or sailing the Caribbean/South Seas even if you did sail with $3000/month as many on the other thread plan to do.

Just sayin'...

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

I would really like to see a quote of me saying that " guys voyaging on $500 will be met with criticism and malice anywhere they go" . That doesn't sound like me. I never said that and I don't believe that. Nor do I look down on anyone, even if they have a small boat or small budget right now -- but that seems to me what you are doing. Now let's just go back to ignoring each other.

In my younger days we'd anchor anywhere and I remember one little wooded beach where a homeowner had his German Sheppard chase us off. If you come ashore in one of those odd places you had better be smiling and cheerful and try to make friends. People are shallow so it would really help if you looked good in a bikini. And because you anchored out a lot, the 57 varieties of local cops plus the CG would all get to know you - one at a time, one way or another. If you were legal, most of them would be polite about it. The jokes about how your boat smelled or how you flushed your toilet would influence how you were treated. Laundry would be sketchy. Its possible at a few marinas to base your dingy cheaply and moor the boat but that might cost you more than you can afford.

Seems to me you've forgotten your own post? Ignoring each other has nothing to do with this... If you say it live up to it!

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

You left out where I wrote -"For instance, where I am on the Hudson.."

That is just a realistic description of one specific area - The Hudson River. It is based on my many years of knowledge of the Hudson. No place did I say "anywhere you go" or "malice" and I did not criticise anyone.I am 100% in support of cheap adventure.

Am I wrong - about the Hudson? Then correct me. As for my little C22 - this is't the only boat I or my family have ever owned. But you with your 25 foot boat! What is THAT like? You must have all the insight.I look forward to the benefit of your superior knowledge.

Or ignoring you.

I guess my superior knowledge doesn't apply since I don't plan on sailing the Hudson and I imagine many others... but you seem to be the expert... I read some of your responses both here and on the chat forum... you're in no support of the $500/month thread!

I don't know I guess size matters... but you probably know that right!

Let's just agree to disagree...doesn't make sense to continue ranting on this... many don't plan to travel up the Hudson on their way down to the Keys or Bahamas.


PS... I see you edit your responses while I post mine.... My experience every weekend on Puget Sound sailing all the way from Everett to Seattle, Union Bay, Lake Washington, Port Townsend, San Juan's, etc... Yeah... all great and it's done with a working marine head (you know the water flush type) something I'm sure you don't have on a C22... maybe the Hudson cops and CG need to look at your potty holding bucket... best to do as you wish!

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Would it be possible to anchor in the Hudson river, dinghy to shore and find a pastrami on Rye? Maybe catch a subway to Yankee field and watch an afternoon game? If so, then it might just be paradise.... As long as the Mariners win!
