One of the main questions we get asked is how much it costs to live this live aboard and cruising life style, especially on a powerboat, motor yacht, or trawler. Well we’ve been tracking our expenses for two full years now, and we are going to break it all down for you here. We will even do a deep dive into our boat maintenance including repairs from our Hope Town accident and the blown head gasket. This may be a shocker for some of you.
We did an interview! We were sitting back one day doing some video editing and we get a direct message on Instagram from a lovely fellow, Captain Frank, from The Ships Log requesting to sit with us and have a chat. We felt honored that someone would take the time out of their day to talk to us, so we immediately said yes.
There are plenty of expensive and laborious ways to install a TV in your boat. From integrated wall displays to electronic popup out of cabinet rigs. But what if you wanted to save some money for other things on your never ending boat project list, and save some time with an easy to setup system that is secure and versatile, using products and parts you can get today?
Hope Town, one of the most lovely little villages in the Abacos. With its brightly colored houses, walking paths, quaint shops, and the protected harbor, one can have a wonderful experience with an extended stay here. We had a mountain top experience here, but also went through the valley...
It never ceases to amaze us how a wonderfully blissful day can be quickly be turned into bewilderment, stress, and sprinklings of dread when you are cruising. We had one of those kind of days in mid December 2017, making a passage from Bimini to Great Harbour Cay in the Berry's, on one of the most beautiful cruising days we have ever had on the ocean.
