couple questions, what size boat, how many crew, also i am guessing zero nights spent at dock except maybe 1 night @ 70$
next are you setup for coastal cruising or gunkholing boondocking ( where your on hook every few days)? apologizes for not knowing the exact term but your expenses are extraordinary low for 15 months at $200.00 a month or $6.50 a day.
what kind of meal planning and snacks, juice or is this a basic rice and red beans diet supplemented with self caught seafood.
not trying to be a dick here just super curious is all and more info fills in the blanks.
:ship-captain:

edit, are you self sufficient for water and power

Don has very very carefuly put each month s expenses up for the last 15 months.

There have been much discussion and learning for all (except me, I can't learn) in an entirely open way that I have never seen on any forum.

And you, pig headedly show your ignorance and double down on it.
