We just finished up our 13th month of cruising full-time on our Bristol 29.9.
This month we moved from Port Washington
, NY to Annapolis
, MD where we have settled in to work
shows (we thought it would be fun), after which we’ll start heading south in earnest.
Below is spending in September:
Groceries/Non-food Groceries/Alcohol: $584.06
Denatured alcohol for the Origo
Cell phones/data, iCloud storage
, and Garmin
inReach subscription: $87.74
Amazon Prime: $12.99
Times subscription: $20.20
Non-owner auto liability insurance
: $62.30 (one time payment for six months of coverage)
: $510 (three weeks in Annapolis
, paid in advance)
stuff: $189.29 (Aqua Maps, dinghy
nav lights, starboard, tiller extension, dinghy
line, stuff sack)
Random: $41 (hair cut, marina tips)
** We also bought a new-to-us dinghy for $500, but sold
our old dinghy for $600 which covered the $500 plus the rental car and gas to pick up the dinghy. I decided not to include it in the monthly total since it was a wash. If we hadn't bought and sold
in the same month, then I would have included it as an expense in the monthly numbers.
2019 monthly average to date: $3,383.92
2018 monthly average (September - December): $4,465.95
Monthly average since starting to cruise: $3,451.30
I hope this is helpful.
