Month 36 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat
Itís been 3 years now and the spreadsheet attached has all of it.
Spend The whole month in a slip in Gulfport, MS to have electric for the air conditioning and to be in a set place with a plan for hurricanes. But we spent 1 week in New Orleans, which was the reason we came this way to begin with.
Did grocery, beer and supply runs as normal.
Boat costs were low and only included some winch servicing parts and some new curtains.
No fuel this month.
Ate and drank out a lot. Of course, the whole week in New Orleans was eating and drinking (more drinking I think).
Entertainment includes going to the movies once, some books, and entrance type fees for places in New Orleans.
Communication was for our cell phones. These are also entertainment as we use the data to stream video and the hotspots for internet as the wifi/internet here is terrible.
No marina costs this month as it was paid last month.
Transportation and travel costs were car/gas and streetcar for the week in New Orleans, and the local bus in Gulfport.
The total expenses were $ 3,012.94 of which $1,369.03 had something to do with going to New Orleans. But then some of those costs would have occurred during the week if we had stayed on the boat. Cost breakdown as follows for planners and hecklers:
Food, soda, alcohol, clothing, sundries - $ 1,062.97
Boat upgrades, repairs, maintenance - $ 156.91
Fuel (diesel, gas, propane) - $ 0
Dining and drinking out - $ 1,103.64
Entertainment - $ 226.89
Communication, storage, shipping - $ 97.52
