Budget Busters and Budget Buddies

Here are some of the cost that we have found will blow away all your best-made plans:

  • Eating and drinking ashore
  • Staying at marinas
  • Cellular phones
  • Equipment failures
  • Having work done on your boat by professionals
Here, on the other hand, are ways to keep that budget in line:
  • Entertaining fellow cruisers on board
  • Fishing, crabbing and collecting other seafoods
  • Using book swaps and public libraries
  • Cutting each other's hair
  • Set your boat up ahead of time to be able to sustain your battery power. A generator, solar panels, wind generator, etc.
  • Sewing machine. Carry one aboard to make your own repairs and to fabricate awnings, weather clothes, and a multitude of other things.
