It has to be good enough to go down 4 feet. 😁

well I went down 6.5 feet

I'm not impressed with my regulator after the first use. But it's because the mouthpiece is poor and I bet it can be replaced.

Personal joke, sorry for the cruising budget distraction.

Thanks for posting. How did you like staying in Sarasota for a month? We have friends and family in the area and we’re debating taking a mooring there for awhile at some point.

Far as a cruiser stop I rate it fairly low. A month stay was way too long, and that's taking into consideration I only stayed on the boat 3 weeks. Other than restaurant/bars on Main St 1/2 mile walk away nothing a cruiser wants/needs is very close. But if it combines with friends/family visit I would rate it as an OK/good stop.

I wrote an Active Captain review

I take it back. There are no "high end" restaurants and bars, just low life places with some upscaling. If you want upscale you need to have a car (no place to rent one, but there's someone that will take you to the rental place for $100)

this = good budget cruiser stop

Re: Month 33 Expenses of Cruising and Living on the Boat

Glad I'm not spending your guys budget out of my own wallet.

Looks that it will be about $2200. Looks most was spent on food, wine, and woman. I'm doing travel hops and will post the number when I have time and internet at same time.

My Brother kept a boat in Carrabelle for years at the Moorings, it used to be the nice Marina back then.
My Sister in law told my Wife before we went down that they would be the prettiest Women in Carrabelle, because they had all their teeth

Actually if you like seafood Carrabelle was hard to beat, you may be eating in a closed down convience store and most everything was fried, but it was good food.
