Re: 10.5 Month Budget $$

Talking of budget, this is the best app I've found to keep an eye on things with the ability to track budgets & projects.''
Expense IQ Money Manager

Bad news though, according to this thread I've been living in abject poverty on and off for years.....

Good news is it's great fun , and the criteria has long been not what others think or do but if you wake up optimistic & go to bed thinking that was a good day then things are just fine, as opposed to what anyone else thinks or does, that's down to them and judging just doesn't actually change the universe in any way apart from maybe making people grumpy so why bother?

Not quite the whole picture though, Portugal must be one of the cheaper places around to live really well without spending much, great food down the market for very little, eating out a menu del dia with the fishermen in a cheap cafe for 3 1/2 euros , as good a meal as restaurants 5 times the price. Decent wine for a euro a litre.
Lift out & sand blast needed soon so that will add a couple K in a fishing boatyard, but still poverty stricken by many standards, who knew it could be so much fun

Take that you fun suckers!!!
Rich is the 90' M/Y that took on 2770 gallons of diesel. One nights dockage plus fuel was over $6200.00. In reality, a 90 footer is small in todays cruising world. Go visit Thunderbolt Marine in S.C., or hang out in St. Martin... I'm convinced that anyone can find a way to cruise, whether your budget is $500.00/month or $50,000.00/month. It just depends on your net worth.

10.5 Month Budget $$

I think Thunderbolt is on the Ga side, it is a VFR reporting point for Hunter Army Airfield.
But yes there is a yard there that refits "Yachts" you know the ones with helicopter landing pads on the deck.
We would fly over and they apparently had a dry dock, with a huge hangar like tent that goes over the Yachts. I think it may have been on railroad tracks.
Also in Savannah is the Gulstream plant where they build the new G650 among other toys.
The 650 starts at 65 million without paint and interior and they have a backlog years long. Want one? Put a boat load of money down and wait years, or I'm sure pay a whole lot more and get one tomorrow.

Once you own it, it's a deal though, only about $5,000 an hour to fly


On edit, I just looked on Google Earth, they yard is just south of the bridge over Wilmington river, it's not a tent either, but what look like a large aircraft hanger, looks like railroad tracks that they move the boats on to put them inside of the building

Right, in Savannah. Sorry for the mis-information.

Re: 10.5 Month Budget $$

We've left the marina the last couple of days. Went sightseeing a little, took our daughter out to dinner, went to Home Depot for some boat stuff, went to Walmart and got oil for the various boat engines and got groceries while there. That adds up to about $350 with 4 days of the budget month left. Ooooooh the pressure as I really wanted that cheap bicycle!

Re: 10.5 Month Budget $$

Good for you getting off the reservation (away form the marina as we like to say -being full time liveaboards here). Go for the cheap bike. I'll buy it off you when you leave...and I don't buy anything that doesn't fit on my boat. I took the purple (marina) bike with orange wheels out for a trip today. Nice ride! The purple and the yellow bikes are the best marina bikes, but everyone that has been here awhile knows that. So, hard to find sometimes.

"I" street will take you to West Marine and Winn Dixie. I wouldn't steer left of I street, and you are pushing your luck there. I keep a few dollars handy for the locals, so they know me. Once, I even got asked "if I was homeless too"? Gotta blend in!

Re: 10.5 Month Budget $$

Well my wife went to stay with her Mom for a few days so she is ashore with access to a car and stores. Making it under budget this month is probably doomed now.
