Cost to Cruise - Costs for March
Maintenance / Upgrades centers around generator fuel leak (replaced return line with 3/16" hose), purchased this cool ‘Spider Light’ - am thinking we might be able to use it on the aft deck as a reading light this summer.
I also purchased an Arduino Uno Starter Kit. This is a small single board computer I am thinking of playing around with to created a more intelligent alternator regulator for the Kubota generator. Plus it brings back memories of 35+ years ago when I was messed around with KIM (KIM-1 that is....)
We spent a LOT of time in transient moorage this month, more than is reflected in the costs as we also got our deposit refunded from Friday Harbor. We had the Cascadia boat-in at Anacortes, plus we spent several days there waiting out storms. And La Conner to make the train coming and going.
Groceries and Dining Out are a bit higher largely due to Kristi's trip down South - is also what makes up the Transportation category. And medical hit us again, with a back billing of increased insurance rates from the first of the year, and one last medical invoice the insurance company would not pay - even after we coordinated with them in January before leaving Friday Harbor.
9 month average! Getting close to that Full Year view! Will we make $3,000 / mo average? (Little hope for $2,000 I think.)
