I have a dream..That i want to make true
 
Hi, i have this dream that i want to buy a sailboat and live on it.
I am from Sweden and here you can buy and OK sailboat for around $3000.

I work online as an affiliate and i think i would need Internet at least 10 hours a week, that would not be hard right? If i visit different cities and go to Internet café or connect to wireless Internet in cities.

But what do you guys think is an ok budget when living aboard?
Food & water, some fuel, hygienic stuff, $50 each month on the boat.

I will buy solar-panel and a kitchen to use (If there is none in the boat)

I really want this, i need some inspiration like videos or blogs to read from.

Many Thanks!
Robin

No one here is likely to talk you out of it. All the best in your pursuit.

I can't know the economics of living aboard in Sweden, but consider the maintenance of your boat in your budget. I suspect the sails and rigging on a $3,000 boat will actually cost more than the boat when they need to be replaced, and they will. Insurance, maintenance, slips, hauling fees, moorings, bottom paint, zincs, oil changes, etc, etc. just have to be more than $50 per month.

I suspect a translation issue

What does it cost to eat on land in Sweden? 50 Bucks or less? Please, tell us what your eating? In Thailand for 2 people it's about 40 bucks food only, we eat welll. In a first world country it's gotta be double.
