this month again and that makes 3 months in a row! This month we traveled from Washington DC
to New London Ct.
costs were mostly a couple of capacitors for our generator
and a new bow nav light after our spinnaker
ripped the old one right off the bow. The rest was general maintenance
items like cleaners etc.
Marina costs were for 1 night on a mooring
In Havre de Grace, and it was too much for the location!!! Was going to spend a couple days there, but it was so terrible on that mooring
that we just left. On the plus side this is the lowest marina monthly costs we have ever had (bless the mighty anchor).
Did a few good grocery runs. Dining costs were high and I’m sure we were thinking “haven’t spent money
so let’s eat out”. Also, it was freakin hot the past month and think we ate out sometimes just to sit in air conditioning
. Still it was less dining out than last month, so we showed great restraint.
Brought a lot of fuel! Some of the fuel
costs really were from motoring the month before. But we basically motored all the way up the Potomac
to DC and back to the Chesapeake. Then up the Chesapeake and through the C&D Canal
to Cape May, then from Sandy Hook NJ to Port Washington
NY. Still we have sailed a fair amount lately and I was surprised at the fuel
