Re: $3000/mo cruising budget
I wasn't trying to make a distinction between a cruising budget and a retirement liveaboard budget. For us, retirement will mean full time cruising but we'll return to land when we're ready, not because we've run out of money. At the risk of stating the obvious, if a person can be in a position where their cruising budget comes from steady sources of income (e.g. a pension, earnings from investments) and they don't touch the principal, then it's not necessary to rely on the funds from selling the boat.
All I was trying to say was that if people are willing to look outside the box, they may find that they don't need as much money as they thought to go cruising.
