Month 34 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Not many are reading these here on SN anymore based on views. But if you have a question for me about the numbers etc. use the contract feature and email me it. Don't send a PM as I'm not logging in other than to post this, so I'm not going to see it. If you post a reply question I may see if I read in lurk mode, but don't expect an answer.

Traveled from Carrabelle FL to Pensacola Fl. Really the whole month except the last day was in a slip in Carrabelle to have electric for the air conditioning and as there was little to do there or to spend money on (budget control).

Did grocery, beer and supply runs a little more than normal as the dining choices in Carrabelle made cooking seem more attractive (I tried the top-rated Carrabelle place, they were 4.5 stars but really were 3 stars for the rest of the world) and there was a grocery store basically across the street from the marina (a big reason I stayed there).

Boat items included an EasyStart for the main 16K air conditioner so it will start and run on my Honda (enjoying that as I type on anchor). New cable for my topping lift (had to buy 250’ on Amazon because neither hardware store had it), a couple of new CO detectors (may have saved my life last night) and a couple odd things. Out of the “boat” items this month $268.53 was the EasyStart and it was well worth the cost!!

Only fuel this month was a propane tank refill.

Ate out twice for dinner, once for lunch with our daughter, and did a few bar stop ins.

Marina was for a month in a slip with power in Carrabelle ($427.73), but a return deposit on a slip in Panama City I decide to not stay at ($252.77).
The total expenses were $ 2,200.26.

Cost breakdown as follows for planners and hecklers:

Food, soda, alcohol, clothing, sundries - $ 1,200.20
Boat upgrades, repairs, maintenance - $ 425.90
Fuel (diesel, gas, propane) - $ 10
Dining and drinking out - $ 280.84
Entertainment - $ 20.95
Communication, storage, shipping - $ 96.41
Fees – $ -71
Marina - $ 174.96
Electric - $ 0
Medical - $ 5
Transportation - $ 0
Gifts - $ 0
Water - $ 0
Registration - $ 0
Insurance - $ 0

Honestly curious: did you have negative fees?

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know
