Re: 2.5 Years of Cruising Assets Cost
Don has been stand up on this. Several have said in one way or another expense is from the boat. The rest is usually discretionary. Restaurants, alcohol, fancy food or rice and potatoes, synthetic fabrics or cotton etc. But fuel, spares, repairs, maintenance, sails etc arenít. Not if the boat going to move time to time and keep floating.
We have 200g. We went two years buying water. Now have a watermaker. Big expense but big change in quality of life. Thatís a choice. There are many thinks like that. Windscoops, sun canvas, easy sail handling systems etc. yous pay ya money and take ya choice.
