Thanks for the feedback!
I couldn't figure that out either. I think it's averaging all the columns. I do not use Excel. Here's what I just finishedoing "=SUM(B12+B34:I34)/8" for average cost. I just assumed that I could take the average cost square and add B12 to it. This gave me an average of 744/month. If I did it correctly then my average monthly expenditure up until Feb, 2015 is 747 dollars per month. Not $644, which did not include initial cost of the boat. Also notice that there are months missing. I did no repairs
during these months, as I was busy with the new house. So expenditures were marina, boat insurance
and town insurance
. Approximately, $300.00. So the average would be off a bit. I'll try to learn to use excel...
If someone is looking for a cheap
place to live than a sailboat is not it. Unless you, like many in my current
marina are not interested in anything but a floating efficiency apartment, e.g. there is a man who has been in his boat 25 years without starting the motor
or hauling the boat out of the water
