Month 14 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Still in a slip in Brunswick GA and am just going to stay here till after Thanksgiving now. The lesson I learned is that when you are going to be in a slip a while that you should do your doctor appointments earlier, so you have time to be run through the testing system.
The boat was the big expense category this month again. Got sails repaired, bottom cleaned, and the other $500 was the small stuff that people don’t seem to keep track of like buying spares, cleaners etc.

Didn’t think we dined out all the much, but it added up to a lot. A lot of the dining out is due to having to go out of town for medical appointments.

Transportation was car rental for doctor trips and gas.
Medical costs were a trip to the dentist, monthly medical insurance cost, doctor visit copays, testing copays, and a motel stay to go to the doctor. Of course, over half the transportation and big hulk of dining is medical related.

Communication is all in cell phone costs.

Entertainment was going to a movie, a yearly Time Share expensive, and a month of CBS on line.

Marina cost is for a month of dockage and electric (broke out the costs).

The total was $4,098.90. Cost breakdown as follows:

Food, soda, alcohol, clothing, sundries - $ 828.41
Boat upgrades, repairs, maintenance - $ 1,121.01
Fuel (diesel, gas, propane) - $ 0
Dining out - $ 662.40
Entertainment - $ 163.42
Communication, storage, shipping - $ 153.50
Fees – $ 56.25
Marina - $ 584.29
Electric - $ 97.06
Medical - $ 174.32
Transportation - $ 188.18
Gifts - $ 0

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

At best it's the same. But it's hard to tell if some of my problems lately aren't the new boat next to me as they showed up the same time and put out a stronger router signal. I believe its been an improvement for the higher docks that weren't getting the signal before.

No money spent on halloween candy? Plenty of monsters in that marina of yours?

Re: Month 14 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Maybe it was mentioned earlier but what about health insurance costs? Domestic cruising is off the list for us because of mandated health care insurance costs, policies start a $1,000/month and can be as high as $3,300/month.
