Re: Voyaging on $500 per month
Jon, the fuel delivery cost must be heavily subsidized (by me it would appear). Diesel in Toronto is more expensive than those prices.
UP, your assumptions about when you motor and when you sail are simplistic at best. Most of this trip is in the polar easterlies and the winds are just not very reliable up there in the summer. When the ice opens up you have to move and move fast, you can't be trying to find the wind that will keep you sailing at 3 knots.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
