Month 10 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat
We continue our evil cruising ways. This past month we traveled from St Augustine FL to Brunswick GA. We went further than that as we went North and came back down. Weren’t in any hurry and just wandered around traveling on the ICW and outside
We spent our stopped time on moorings when at a town and on anchor if not.
The raw water strainer for the generator clogged up and that took out the impeller and exhaust hose. Since it is so hot we needed that generator for the air conditioning and next day shipped the parts.
We did a lot of cheap to free sightseeing, which probably involved a meal out during it. We also got a car and went sightseeing some staying in motels etc. Since I know everyone reads these with the “I can do it for less” I have put all the car traveling/motel type sightseeing into a separate category.
Entertainment expenses were for some Kindle books, movies, mini golf and whatever if it didn’t involve a rental car to go to (if it was a local bus ride to get to it, it is in entertainment).
The total was $ 3,525.35, which breaks down as follows:
Food, soda, alcohol, clothing, sundries - $ 879.87
Boat upgrades, repairs, maintenance - $ 213.61
Fuel (diesel, gas, propane) - $ 229.35 (got to feed that generator)
Dining out - $ 743.57
Entertainment - $ 103.43
Sightseeing - $ 760.49
Communication, storage, shipping - $ 233.78
Bank Fees – ($ 42.04)
Marina - $ 329.70
Medical - $ 22.27
Transportation - $ 51.32
Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
