Re: Cost to sail 1,000 nm.

Gosling's appears to be under new "distributorship" or perhaps ownership in the US. New fancy label, new bottle. $19.95 for 4/5th, $29.95 for 1.75L. In quantities that can't possibly ne made in Bermuda anymore, there's just not that much fluid of any kind to be found on that island. Comes in "regular" and "light" now, as well.

If it is your first trip... The rest of your life. Grin. In the metaphorical sense.

Re: Cost to sail 1,000 nm.

You will actually be saving money every inch of the way compared with being on a mooring or - shock horror- in a slip. Less food and fizz consumed at sea than in port.

The only time it will cost more is if/ when something breaks....

Re: Cost to sail 1,000 nm.

[QUO moveTE=tuffr2;1959319]The reason I asked this question is I will be moving. I want to move to the east coast to have ocean access. I can move to Va. or move to Fl.

From my research Va. east coast might not be a bad place to call 'home port'. Cost to haul out is not bad.

Florida is approx 1,000 miles further south. That started the question but then I thought it is good information to know anyway. Good general knowledge.

But the winters in florida are worth it. being able to be outside 12 months a year, and the quality of life increase for me is easily worth The move
Plus. it is much nicer to live on your boat in Florida especially in February

Re: Cost to sail 1,000 nm.

Sailing from Florida to the Virgin Islands will save you (roughly) only about 250 nm versus leaving from Virginia, but you'll very likely use a lot more fuel and time bashing into the wind, waves and current.

The trip from Virginia typically takes 9-11 days, where the trip from Florida can take weeks if you don't like the torture of upwind bashing. Do a search for "Thorny Path" using the Custom Search tool in the "Search" pull down menu.

Hum -- I see you are trolling again -- last time it was all about a watermaker for a boat you don't have - now 1,000nm cost
let's see - Fla to BVI about 1,000nm - cost maybe $100 in fuel -- or if you can sail which I am not sure you can - maybe nothing -- oh I guess you need to eat so say 10 days of food - what do you spend on food for 10 days.

Get a boat and learn how to sail first> Just saying

Re: Cost to sail 1,000 nm.

The most expensive 1,000nm sail I have done cost about $60,000. Andrews 70, blew out the brand new racing main on the delivery home.

On the cheap end its food and drinks and ice for five days, say $500. If you amortize big picture items by the calander instead of the miles sailed.

Somewhere between those two is where you will likely end up. Any other questions I can be helpful with?


Seriously it really depends on the boat, the conditions, the way you account for replacement costs, how many people, where (if) you stay, and luck.

Re: Cost to sail 1,000 nm.

it is irrelevant as each and every boat doing the exact same thing has different needs and different problems.
hope ye catch some good fishies with your trolling. this is actually an unanswerable question for the reason of individuality.

VA has winter every year. FL has the occasional hurricane.

If you will mainly be going back and forth to the Caribbean then VA makes sense.

If you just want to sail in the ocean then South Florida with access to the Keys and Bahamas will get you away from winters.

Re: Cost to sail 1,000 nm.

The cost depends on what breaks along the way.
