|Viking Star Costs summary as of August 2013|
Highlights include: Paying for garbage disposal noted in Misc, and BTW: VERY happy these resources are available for us to us - when they are.. I feel soo much better paying a reasonable fee, then being one of those 'sneak ashore' folks. . . .
Since entering Canada, Kristi and I have noticed a ping-pong on Groceries each other month being $500 vs. $1,000. August continues that and we THINK it is associated with major restocking of meats and liquor.
Solar was off a bit, perhaps accounting for the higher generator hours vs. last August? (That and that we are also using the Water-maker this summer). Modeled predicted 142Ah/day in August, and we only got 125Ah this year (vs. 157Ah/day in August of 2012). This is the largest under performance to date vs. the modeled expectation.
Not much more to say, we just dropped anchor in 100' of water - 1st time this deep and we used all our 400' of rode. But we are waiting for the tide to be right at Sechelt Rapids tomorrow - look them up, these are not ones to play with.
