Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Faster, I thought you might do that, after all the truth has been suppressed for thousands of years. Why not start a theological thread and see if there is any interest among the sailing community?

No one is suppressing anything. You can discuss religion all you want in the Off Topic forum section that was created for it.

For the most part based on all the cruiser blogs I have read with cost info the $3k/mo is frugal spending!

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

I bet some engineer type could figure out a boat expense budget based on dollar per foot per day in use and then index it to inflation.

FR... I didn't move anything - took them out of view. If you want to start a thread/discussion on that topic feel free to take it to the PRWG section of "Off Topic".

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

BWS did an article about satphones this month. My only experience to date is with Globalstar used briefly for gribs. Wonder if anyone has real time experience of the three main players and true expense over a year of snow birding on east coast. Also any recommendations would be appreciated. Tx.

I would like to read the responses, but I would think you would get better response as a new thread instead of just from people following this one.

As has been discussed numerous times, cruising means one thing to some people and something else to someone else, but if I think of all the people we have met in the last few years from the BVI to Vanuatu, the budgets for most people, including ourselves, is substantially less than $3000 a month. If I had to pick a median I would guess more like $1800, but these are handy people rarely going near a marina unless there is no choice (most of South Africa for example) Boats are generally from 37' to 50'.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Thanks Killarney. Please correct my facts and assumptions in this calculation: A 45 foot boat with crew of two on a 3 year circumnavigation averaged about $1,800 a month.

$1,800/45 ft. = $40 per foot per year. $40/365 days = $1.33 per day per foot for a crew of 2. I am assuming this includes food costs which doesn't change with the size of the boat but that should be easy enough to extrapolate. So for example, my wife and I am planning a 3 month cruse up the east coast of the US in a 35 foot sailboat:

90 days X 35 feet X $1.33 = $4,189 add a little more for food & fun and toss the dock lines.

I am sure this idea can be refined with more information, but this is based on actual and recent costs covering all circumstances for an extended period of time. It will be interesting and helpful to know what costs will be necessary to get the boat ready for another 3 year circumnavigation (not implying you are planning such an event). It would also be helpful to know what percentage of the $1,800 per month figure was consumed by the boat and what percent by governmental requirements.
