We were actually pretty close to last year's monthly spending. In 2015 we averaged $2,118.46 a month and $2,144.52 in 2016. We did have a pretty significant refit in 2016 when we hauled out at Sailcraft Service Marina. Along with the myriad of projects completed we had some dingy davits installed for over $6,000.00. If we just remove the davit install we would be close to the $1,600.00 I was hoping to hit for our monthly average. We will be doing more work to Starjewel in 2017 to keep her ship shape for living aboard, but I don't think it will be anywhere near the investment. Hopefully 2017 will be a bit more kind to our finances as we get ready to move aboard.
