Month 32 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Yea, under budget this month!!! First time ever under $2k/mo., which just shows that if you overspend month after month there will become a time when your wallet needs a little rest.

Traveled from Boot Key/Marathon FL down to Dry Tortugas, then up to Sarasota Fl where I’m going to stay for a month to do “stuff”.

Did grocery, beer and supply runs as normal.

Nothing broke on the boat this month (yea) and it didn’t need any semi expense maintenance. Sold my rigging tension gauge and that was more than what I spend on the other stuff so “the boat” this month generated money back.

Did a lot of “dining and drinking” out. I think the most expense was like $75 as lots of times it was to just get out of the afternoon heat. I notice on the spreadsheet that we spend about the same each month on “food” plus “dining” each month, just that the amount in each vary.

Marina was for stays on mooring balls in Marathon and Fort Myers Beach.

The total expenses were $ 1,969.72. Cost breakdown as follows for planners and hecklers:

Food, soda, alcohol, clothing, sundries - $ 736.23
Boat upgrades, repairs, maintenance - $ -103.00
Fuel (diesel, gas, propane) - $ 74.09
Dining and drinking out - $ 627.39
Entertainment - $ 157.72
Communication, storage, shipping - $ 112.08
Fees – $ -77.67
Marina - $ 338.13
Electric - $ 0
Medical - $ 0
Transportation - $ 24
Gifts - $ 46.14
Water - $ 0
Registration - $ 0
Insurance - $ 0

Dry Tortugas are unihabited islands where you anchor and snorkel and nothing else, aren't they?
How long were you there?
I always found those sort of places a blessing to the budget. 🙂

They are.

But we were only there a couple of days as a weather window opened and we left.

Re: Month 32 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Never should start getting too happy about a month of under budget.

Went to change the oil in my generator and found there is a seawater leak somewhere. I believe it's the heat exchanger on my finely crafted Lombardi POS. I'll have to pull it out and take to a radiator shop as I've sure an OEM would cost half the price of a new POS.

Yep. The trend seems to be to include the exhaust manifold and heat exchanger in one unit. Can't charge $3ooo for one if it wasn't proprietary.
