Added a new tab page on the spreadsheet for “cost events” items that happened each month. Hint, they happen more often than you think!
Still in Boot Key Marathon FL with my fellow boat
scum people. My wife and I were at the bar for Happy Hour yesterday and across the bar heard this woman say to her friend "I hate people living out on the boats. They are just scum!" Met to leave beginning of Feb, but a medical
item got in the way and we realized we were trying to force ourselves to head
to the Bahamas
and this made no sense as we don’t have a schedule. So plan to get out of here in March.
Did grocery, beer
and supply runs as normal dollar wise even though there was big restock trip that has the freezer
packed right now.
costs were high. Replaced our solar
controller (turned out old one wasn’t bad), got a big heavy duty tarp to make into a sun shade for the boat, got a new nav chip for chartplotter
, replaced a macerator pump
and got a spare. Plus a whole of those little “not counting things that add up to real $$)
was gas for the dinghy
Marina costs were a month’s mooring
in Marathon/Boot Key.
were doctor visits and transportation costs involved to get there. Plus, monthly ACA plan payment that went up $55/mo. this year.
Transportation and travel costs were a rental car/gas/tolls.
Gifts include some birthday gifts and the return of some of our Christmas
