The pleasures and adventures of cruising under sail are amazingly affordable, say Lin and Larry Pardey. But to keep your dreams on budget, financially, emotionally, and timewise, you have to decide – are you a cruiser or a consumer? Topics covered include making your getaway plans to finding a truly affordable boat, keeping your outfitting costs and maintenance time in control, then learning to feel confident as you cruise farther ahead.
Their chart of the gear considered necessary by many shoreside experts, compared to that carried by several cost conscious cruisers, will give you a convenient checklist to gauge whether you are buying true necessities or overloading your budget and boat with high-tech items.
This acclaimed cruising couple reveals how anyone can cruise in champagne style on a beer budget. The essence of making informed, real world decisions on boats, equipment, plans, maintenance to control costs and of making cruising dreams a reality.
