No, we used to call them "tables".
A spreadsheet is like a table on steroids.

Yes, Tables! ... not the pictorial representation of a graph

Re: 1st Time "LiveAboard" Need Help Budgeting Annually

Question #1 You can never really budget as you can never really estimate when a "surprise" repair is going to come up. But you can estimate maintenance. Oil changes depending on how much you run you engine and/or generator. For our Beneteau Oceanis we changed oil every 75 to 100 hrs. We sailed alot which saved us $$ Other maintenance will depend on the year and how good the previous owner took care of it. Water pumps and outboard repairs seems to be a high maintenance. So if you can stock up in spare parts its always good in the long run. I think the percentage is a good place to start but you really have to evaluate the condition and year of your boat.

#2 Anchor... anchor alot. Dont procrastinate, if it needs fixing... fix it.
#3 Big expenses are engine problems. Not sure where you are traveling but consider shipping/ weight. And if you have to have something shipped make sure to use the "Yacht in transit" or else you will pay lots of taxes!
#4 My husband and I are in the technology field and we had to work some of the time and WIFI is good and sometimes not so good - at anchor. Most of time its better to go to land or when you are docking at a marina, its all good. *I recommend getting a waterproof case to carry your laptop either way.

Hope this helps! Fair winds and safe travels

The whole point of budgeting is to account for potential surprises and average them into your plans.
