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.


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.
