Overview

What does it actually cost to cruise? How do you keep from blowing the budget you set? Join Lin and Larry Pardey as they share the financial lessons they have learned during 45 years of voyaging and from countless interviews with cruising sailors from dozens of different countries and walks of life. Lin discusses ways to keep maintenance costs in control, the importance of an unstoppable cruising boat and how your ground tackle and dinghy can save you money. Lin also reveals the tempting choice that can double your cruising costs. Larry will show you simple tricks to double the life of your sails. Also included are provisioning tips and planning ideas. This DVD is guaranteed to save you many times its cost while inspiring you to work toward getting "out there" as soon as possible.

Based on their highly successful boat show seminar of the same name, this DVD expands the information found in their best-selling book, Cost Conscious Cruiser. It is a program you will watch time and again, not just for the money-saving ideas but for the glorious sights and sounds of cruising that enliven the narrative. You'll catch glimpses of life on Taleisin as she rushes headlong past the shores of Africa, glides through the far reaches of Brazil then north to the misty shores of Ireland. From peaceful interludes among the coral atolls of the Indian Ocean to the hustle and bustle of exotic locales as far flung as Zimbabwe and Samoa, there is plenty here to fuel your cruising dreams.
