Put it in perspective.
How much would a bedsit cost you in SoCal per month? For my 2 cents, I'd say $400pm is a nice figure for having a roof over your head
, electricity supplied and security
Someone mentioned that my local marina was excessive as it charged £305 per meter per year but for an 8 meter sailboat, that's only about £200 a month. A bedsit here would cost between £250 and £350 per month!
Not to mention that if you wanted to go on vacation
, you can just release the lines and off you go! In a bedsit you would need flights, hotel
