Our cruising costs - month 22 for a middle-aged couple on a modest boat.

I've decided to get caught up with my posts of our monthly costs.

June was our 22nd month of cruising full-time on our Bristol 29.9.

This wasn't a bad month considering all of the time we spent at marinas and the cost for some engine work in Oriental. We splurged on a week at a marina in Beaufort, SC which was a mini-vacation given how much we enjoy Beaufort, but then later in the month we found ourselves paying for four nights in a marina near Southport, NC due to weather. That’s the way it goes sometimes. No regrets though – it was money well spent.

As far as traveling is concerned, June saw us move from Beaufort, SC to crossing the Virginia state line in the Dismal Swamp Canal.

Here we go:

Groceries/Non-food Groceries/Alcohol: $586.82

Gasoline/Diesel: $120.50

Denatured Alcohol: $79.28 (This was a mistake. We accidentally bought two extra gallons, not realizing we were fully stocked. We won’t need to buy any again for quite some time.)

Medical: $14.34

Cell data, iCloud storage, and Garmin inReach subscription: $112.34

Mail Service: $100 (placed on account at UPS Store for future shipping)

Marina: $457.77 (7 nights in Beaufort, SC, 4 nights in Southport, NC)

Laundry: $6.50

Restaurants/Entertainment: $167.83

Professional Boat maintenance: $413.55

Subscriptions and Random Items: $352.10 (Netflix, Amazon Prime, New York Times, marina tips, gloves, citrus rags, box o’ rags, replacement signal horn, Waterway Guide, etc.).

Total: $2,411.03

2020 Monthly average: $3,026.93

2019 monthly average: $3,457.97

2018 monthly average (September – December): $4,465.95

Monthly average since starting to cruise: $3,523.69
