You are in Australia right? If so, we can deduct practically all of the medical costs from these discussions, which makes a huge difference. I think our living costs are generally higher though. Once you factor in exchange rates and relative wages, about 20% or more last time I did a careful analysis.

Re: Cost Review of Year 4 Cruising and Living on the Boat

It is not a competition. If you cruise on so much less than I do that is fine. But instead of just posting your bold low cost numbers and saying how wrong I am in spending MY money how about posting a useful breakdown of your costs and doing it for a long enough period to make it helpful for wannabe cruisers. I personally would be interested in how others are doing it for less long term and what the life/money trade offs are.

If 10% of cruisers that have posted of my budget threads saying how much less they do it would start a series with total numbers we would have lots of threads. Instead we have 2 threads at most.
