This idea just struck me from my reply to a thread up in the newbie department. Budgets are always being asked about. And they are so varying depending on each personal tast. But I was wondering if Gord or someone with some knowledge on yacht repairs
and expenses, could put a brief long term 10year budget
together. I am not intending personall costs in this. Thats to each his own. What I mean is, at what point something has to be replaced. So lets start with a new yacht, say 35-38ft? would that be a good average yacht size??
Lets leave out breakages due to storms etc.
So the rig would expect to be replaced at the 10yr mark
What would the cost of such be?
Haul outs at say 12mths with anodes and scrub, with bottom paint
at say 2yrs. Hull
painted at say 5yrs?
I am not sure of the intervals, so please correct. So what I am trying to get shown here, is a ten year cost of owning a boat. then that could be broken down to a monthly budget
to show just how much a boat realy costs to run per month. Tha amount can then be added to the personall budget.
Hmmm, now looking at it all, and I realise that lot is just scratching the surface, maybe thats too big an ask. Or at least, the figure that is shown, might be a really scary thing to see and maybe many of us would rather be ignorant
