Re: 10 years of cost of cruising data

I'm not going to try "stuff"to save my files different than the default to only be able to upload to a sailing forum

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

It's just the older Excell format.

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go

And they'll turn it down for the cell they know

Its just a quick Save As.

You keep your own file the same. Then you can prune the embarrassing stuff

Re: 10 years of cost of cruising data

I see alcohol is 2% to 6% of budget. Is that cooking alcohol or drinking alcohol.

Just curious.

2018 was a very very expensive year for us. Our average monthly cost went up by about 100%.

We went into Marmaris with a leaking heat exchanger that regardless of how hard I tired to fix it underway and patch the leak it would pop up nearby. Ended up with a lot of salt water all over the engine and a major repair. We hired the best in a certified Yanmar mechanic - Marlin Marine and are very happy with the results but as they said they would never be the cheapest.

We also bought a new genny from UKSails that is an upgrade from the one that came with the boat 15 years ago. We replaced the 15 y/o bimini and dodger and mattress in the forward berth. We added a solar panel. All the through hulls were replaced along with their hoses. Our Force10 stove was 15 years old so we found a guy who rebuilt it. Upgraded our chartplotter from a C70 to a C80.

We did a lot of inland travel in Turkey and then again we flew back to the USA - first time in 4 years and had to stay in hotels as no family around and the cost of a rental car was out of sight. On the way back did a few days in Germany and a stop in Austria. Thus our eating out, hotels and transportation were over the roof.

It was one of those years that we hope we never see again. But for the first time in a long time the boat is almost like new again.

If there was ever a year to drink it was 2017 and the beginning of 2018 - way to many problems - the ones the glossy mags don't tell you about - And traveling inland in SE Turkey is a bit of an issue finding anything hard to drink - in some places not even wine -

We have a Force 10 propane stove - the alcohol we drink - the cost of wine is fairly stable across countries but within a country varies a lot. The cost of hard alcohol is very expensive and more expensive depending of the country. We wintered over in Turkey three winters and the cost of hard alcohol is very very high. We like a couple of bloody marys on sunday and the vodka is very costly.

Actually, looking at those numbers I could save a bunch by going cruising.
If you watch what you do you can do this life very nicely. We do this on our social security only until last year. And we keep the boat in good condition but someplace along the line things just wear out and that was our last year.

Our concern is we can not do this forever and where can we live on social security only? It will be interesting as we have some ideas. And our time is getting short to figure it out.

But cruising does not have to be mega bucks.
