 THE COST-OF-CRUISING VARIABLES

"Self-sufficiency is a key to budget cruising. The crew's ability (or inability) to perform regular and preventative maintenance, as well as most repair jobs aboard, significantly effects the cruising kitty. Hiring skilled labor (when you can find it) is expensive. The frugal sailor is a self-taught handyman who acquires a working knowledge of mechanics, sail repair, carpentry, rigging, electronics, and plumbing. Where you sail also makes a big difference. The cost of living aboard in cruising grounds such as Guatemala, Turkey or Thailand is much cheaper than in countries like Norway, Italy and Japan. "
