Re: $3000/mo cruising budget
It was getting the new boat that has prompted us to sail more, having searched for many years, and as we have been getting older, I was beginning to think our "dream" had become "the search" for the boat, not what finding the boat would allow us to do. That was getting old. It seemed it would never end. But then the boat magically appeared practically in our backyard, 12 hours after seeing it, it was ours, and the dream has become real. We're spending money left and right: A new cradle, winter storage, wrapping, some new equipment, a new mainsail, cleaning and repair of the existing ones... But, hard as it is to believe, I'm enjoying making these purchases and paying for these services. Maybe it will get old, but it's not yet!
