Maybe the difference is having a "working ship" and accepting that the salty look ain't so bad.

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Nope, wrong again. You want black and white answers when there are not any. You ask about reality while living in fantasy. Not having any kind of "cruising plan" must surely add to your angst. Why...

Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

So Don0190, what keeps you from getting out and cruising on your 3000 a month? Your miserable in your job? Go. I don't think the 3000 will be enough for you anyway. Maybe time to walk the talk.?...
