A comfortable but modest budget is quite suitable. Also you meet a better class of people.
+1 on this. There will be lots of eyes rolling on this........but that proves the point!

Re: Cruising Cheap Revisited on 700 a Month

I'll service you if you'll service me, but that's not going to replace a sail or buy a round of drinks at the yachtie's club.

Still looking for someone who wants to trade sailboat parts for fish and coconuts.
