Costs so far

For the sheer thrill of it, I’ve been recording the money I’ve spend on my boat so far. This does include travel to and from the boat when it was in Chester, and to my parents’ in Shrewsbury. It doesn’t include the cost of the boat itself!

I haven’t yet finished the windows, installed the gas, done anything with the plumbing or touched the shower. But she’s coming along! Or something…
