4. Food (including House keeping staples)
Food: 1. stored for at dock. 2. stored for at sea. 3. eat at a restrunt.

House keeping:If it is your own boat then you do all the cleaning.

ask the Marina where is the closes place to restock your boat?

5. Laundry
Laundry: Laundry mat,wash at sea In California they do not want you droping water or tolet wast over board so the boat tank must be made so it can be pumped out like a RV. If you have your own waser/Dryer on board.and so on.

6. Intertainment
If you have a TV on board,board games,Nabor party and you own party,

7.maintenance fund
Very inporten: keep it full and add up the coast of any thing on your boat that you mite need to replace and keep a list of new coast for these repairs and dry docking if needed.

($0 being hard to find, but it's out there) Slip costs range from $5.50/ft to $12.00 a foot (or more) depending on the marina. Currently I pay $187 a month with no liveaboard or utility fees. The average in the SF bay area is $8.75/foot and $200 liveaboard + elect


Insurance Oh $260 a year for $300k liability and hull coverage, But thats for a 39 year old sailboat in good condition.

Transportation (Land) $200 for car and insurance, +$50 to $150 a month for gas.

Food (including House keeping staples) $200-$240 ish for 1+cat ( I have an expensive cat)

Laundry $10

Entertainment $50 ish, I'm a cheep date, ha.

maintenance fund month to month oh $50, a haul out for me is $1000 if I do it or $1600-$2000 if someone else does is. Generally I'll do it.

Fuel For a sailboat that burns 0.4 gph, oh $20 ish a month or so, $18 propane lasts 8+ months (non-winter) but may only last a week or two if you have propane heat in the winter.

Really it all depends on what boat you have and where you dock it. A trip to the delta and back costs me maybe $30 for fuel. For a powerboat it could be $800 or so for the same trip. It all depends on what you want.
That doesn't sound too bad, I would have thought the Bay area would have been MUCH more expensive.

Does your marina let you park there for free?

no disrespect but seems like you have all the best intentions but zero knowledge.

apreciate your input on whole foods,natural resources etc

their is a vast amount of knowledge available on sailing with limited resources,on big boats,may be you are not asking the right questions from the right people.

suggest you start on the $500/month thread and up scale accordingly that way with knowledge you may find your 500,000 followers to pay for your aspirations......best atoll

Re: Cruising Budget, Part II

I'm also amazed that the San Fran area isn't crazy in prices.. I'm actually pleasantly surprised.. I used to live there and if I knew it was that affordable, I would've been on a boat years ago!??!

There are very long waiting lists for most marinias, and legal live-aboard permits in the SF Bay are limited.

Yhere's also thr commute! Living next to Oakland and working in South SF it would take me 2 1/2 hours to drive 19 miles acrossed the Bay Bridge and thru SF.

Maybe rolf, maybe not!

After all we all share the same biology, similar education, similar environment. Would be surprising if we were NOT using others' experiences while finding our own ways.

From an angle, it will be labelled 'emulation'. From an other angle, it may be labelled 'learning'. I would not say we have to learn everything from our own experience. If the info we get from others is used wisely, it can save one from many a blind alley.

Re: Cruising Budget, Part II

Actually the SF bay is not too bad price wise. Most marinas in the central bay run about $9 a foot though a few are higher, east bay marinas being less expensive, SF marinas being higher. Average liveaboard fees are $200 with a range of $150-$300 depending on marina. There are waiting lists, but several marinas are about half empty and there are real live a board slips available now at Marina Bay, which is not a bad marina, though the harbor master is a bit of a jerk. Most places I've stayed the parking is free, though you might need a parking pass. Marina bay where I was at for 3 years ran oh $530 ish a month for a 36' slip (for my 34' sailboat), Thats for slip, liveaboard fee and elect on average. It is about 1/2 full at the moment, I was there today visiting a friend.

You're not kidding.. We used to live in San Fran years ago and I would take the BART everywhere, meaning I lived in the eastern bay area..Driving there is way beyond NUTS!! One day, it literally took me over 4 hours to drive from the Presidio area to San Jose.. I was beyond stressed...LOL

Thank you very much my new plan is to get the people who make (The Oasis of the Sea) coast 1.5 Billion to build 8 of them conected to a central hub with a Harbor in the center for taxi cabe boats, and a garden to feed every one. It must stand up to 100foot waves with a capacity of 40,000.
For I need a place to make my garden with a Liveaboard boat that is safe and cheap, and yet have actcess to education.
