Realistic Expectations

If I were to cast off the bowline, I would expect $16k could be used as an annual contigency budget, certainly not as a total annual cruising kitty. Our marina expenses alone cost me over $7,000/year, without maintenance and operating expenses.

However, I''m sure others are living their dreams for a short period, with such a spartan existence. That is, until reality kicks in. Living on the hook is short-lived.
