Kintala Monthly Cruising Costs 2016

Since we've been gone a while now, the cruising cost post was getting a little cumbersome. I'm making some changes to it so that it is both more accurate and also less cumbersome. As a result, you will only get the category totals, not details. I've included a general description of all the categories here:
  • Boat Maintenance: Parts - Major parts like pumps, lights, fan belts, etc.
  • Boat Maintenance: Misc Supplies - Things like oil, hardware, paper towels, paint brushes, tape, tie wraps, etc.
  • Boat Maintenance: Bottom Cleaning - This is only when we pay someone to do it, which we do here in Florida monthly. We usually pay for a few months in advance.
  • Boat Maintenance: Service - This is when we have someone else do work for us which is almost never. An example would be sending our compass to be rebuilt.
  • Boat Maintenance:Tools - Self explanatory
  • Dining Out - Includes even things like coffee at the gas station.
  • Entertainment - Includes any Kindle book purchase, magazine subscriptions, movies, etc.
  • Food - Includes only grocery store food that I prepare myself as well as supplies like laundry soap, tissues, health and beauty aids like shampoo, etc.
  • Gifts Given - Includes small gifts we send to our grandkids from time to time.
  • Land Travel - Any expense related to renting a car, gasoline, motels, air plane tickets, etc.
  • Misc supplies - Includes pretty much anything you would go to Wal-mart for. For us it includes things like bicyle innertubes, cleaning supplies, etc. although some of that is rolled into the food category just because I don't want to take the time to separate it out on the receipts.
  • Navigation - Includes subcriptions to Navionics and the DeLorme inReach.
  • Phones - Our cell phone bill for two phones and all the data we use.
  • Health Insurance - We carry a low premium, high deductible plan.
  • Clothing - Self explanatory
  • Laundry - One category we grossly underestimated when we planned.
  • Medical - Again, we have a low premium, high deductible plan. This includes dental.
  • Memberships - This includes things like our Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club dues as well as our Boat U.S. membership.
  • Bank Fees - This includes ATM charges as well as any other fees to do business out of the country.
  • Legal - This includes things like renewing our Coast Guard documentation or our Customs sticker.
  • Propane - We only get this about every other month or so.
  • Diesel and Gasoline - We used to separate these but it's just too much trouble since they're always on one receipt together.
  • Mooring - Fees for mooring balls
  • Dockage - Self explanatory
