Before I post the expenses, I put a poll
on this one and there is only 1 answer on it so it’s simple. If you what these monthly threads to continue you need to vote on the poll
. Lurkers, if you are not a member
join and vote, if a member
and not logged in, log in and vote. If there isn’t an answer on the poll that fits for you post it in the thread (but if you do it really shows a “yes” vote
Still in a slip in Gulfport, MS till end of month then heading to Marathon. Wife fell off dock
and got hurt (broken shoulder) so there is delay while crew schedule allows them to join me somewhere on the way as my wife wasn't hip on me doing it all alone.
Did grocery, beer
and supply runs as normal, but it seemed to cost less this month to be made up on restock next month.
costs were high. Ordered a new mainsail
, which is more than a month budget
by itself, but have only paid ½ of it as deposit. Got a $76 brand new sewing machine
and have been making curtains, window covers, and dinghy
chaps. I never had used a sewing machine
before, but it’s not very hard to sew ugly type stuff like those. Made a new shelf in the salon
, replaced a bunch of interior
lights with LEDs. Had an AC seawater line clog up and that ended up a fair expense in acid, hoses, and fittings to clear up. Did a bunch of other small things that I can't remember off top of head
, but can see added up to real money
in little small bites.
this month was a propane
Entertainment includes some going to the movies, some books
, Redbox rentals etc.
When My wife fell into the water
her cell phone
was in her pocket, so that was the end of it. At same time my old Apple 5C was kind of past it’s use by date even though it was still working. So, we both got budget
new Samsung phones, but they were still $200 each.
Marina costs were a month’s slip with power and liveaboard
of course are doctor visits and copays for wife’s accident
Transportation and travel costs were a rental car/gas to go to our daughter’s and the local bus in Gulfport. Rental car really could be called medical
as it was to take my wife to Jacksonville
, so our insurance
covered the various doctors etc. visits.
