So, yeah, been there, done that. if you want to play the "been so broke I..." game, consider that you might not be the only varsity player.
BJ, I wasn't trying to ruffle any feathers and I sincerely apologize if I did. I was trying to gain an understanding of where you are coming from. Very impressive thoughts you have there on your website.
BTW I'm not broke, I'm even

No feathers ruffled here. Glad we cleared that up.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I am glad to read this thread. In my case I don't wish to leave the country, just do the Great Loop. I have a 22' trailerable sailboat and no debt. At all. Though maybe I should replace my 1971 Johnson 6hp OB. Old and 2 stroke- I'll need to carry a boatload of parts, or a spare motor. Might as well be a new 6hp 4stroke instead and leave the Johnsoid behind. I'll eat out of cans and take a multivitamin. LED lights and a solar panel integrated into a bimini. Hmmmmm.......gotta get that colonoscopy done..... Is it true a doctor can only write 6 months of prescriptions at a time?

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Yes you can cruise on less than $500 a month. You will make it a lot easier if you stop paying others to put your food ( along with god knows what else ) in cans for you. Third world people don't buy much in the way of canned food. I am embarrassed at how much I paid for pea soup and beans in cans, since I found out how cheap and easy it is to deal with the same stuff in bulk dried. Meat can be easily canned. It turns the toughest cuts and old laying hens into something you can cut with a fork. Before I head offshore, I stock up by going hunting, and caning enough meat for the winter.
