the only problem wwith published costs of cruising is that EVERYONE OUT HERE CRUISES DIFFERENT... we all have different desires and likes and different ideas of fun.
many folks drink and smoke cigarettes. yuk. i do neither....buti keepmy rum
on board and kahlua for cooking
and occasional to rare drink.
a night out in summer here in la cruz could include 15 eso beers with accompnying FREE FOOD.
it could be a night of EXPENSIVE food in a fancy new to la cruz restaurant....300 or more pesos per each person.
is also a very individual thing--i provision in local tiendas--better food than mega mart or soriana--but i need to travel to those places to acquire some of my necessities--chocolate, kitty litter and fancy feast.......
everyone has differing needs so uniform cost charts
also--different areas inone nation can be differing costs for items. eg--mazatlan to fill propane
was 98 pesos. here in la cruz has been 160 and 170 pesos per 5 gallon cannister.
one person's view of mexico can be a lot different than another's.
do you stay in marinas
for hurrycame season or do you run "home" and leave boat to elements?
are you a full time cruiser and if so for how long are you such?
do you anchor out instead of marina?
each and every kind of cruiser will have specific needs and differences in their budgets.
is like saying---what kind of anchor do you anchor out with.....and what kind of chain and how deep water
and how far from others do you park your stuff......and--do you likie marinas run like convalescent homes or au natural......rofl
i live within my limited income
i do not leave my boat to weather
or for weather
i am able to spend season of named storms inside a marina if i want to--is low season and special rates appear like magic. even in marinas run like convalescent homes...so much organized play time for the inmates..LOL
i also provision for a week passage
as if i will be gone a month or two. -- ye never know.........
