like I have a job or that the stock market has still been doing great.
Still in Boot Key Marathon FL with my fellow boat
scum people. My wife got the medical
release and now is back on the boat
and we think we will be able to move on to the Bahamas
Did grocery, beer
and supply runs boat wise as normal. But there was Christmas
dinner and supplies at 2 locations. A fair amount of costs in this general category wasn’t food
or drink, but I don’t keep more details to separate.
Boat costs were HIGH. But for those watching for repair and maintenance
cost you should note that out of the total a lot went to boat upgrades. Spent about $1000 on a new fancy electric head
as it seemed I was spending $200-300 maintaining the bottom of the line manual head
. Got a new $2141 9.8HP outboard
to replace our old 6HP one as it just took so long to go somewhere with the old.
was gas for the dinghy
Dining was happy hours and dinners with family
Entertainment includes going to some movies and shows.
Communication was our cell phone
plan plus a shipping
Marina costs were a month’s mooring
in Marathon/Boot Key.
were doctor and PT visits and copays for wife’s shoulder and a couple of massages when I hurt my back.
Transportation and travel costs were a rental car/gas for 2 weeks of car rental, only 1 week of the car is in the number as the second hasn’t posted yet (but the tolls and gas have).
Gifts include some Christmas gifts and birthday gifts
Paid 3 years of Coast Guard documentation
Paid first installment for the years boat insurance
