Lin reveals a tempting choice you should avoid that can double your cruising costs. Larry shows you how to check your sails and some simple tricks to double their life.

The Pardeys also share some ways to spend a little bit of money to enhance your cruising experience. These cruising budget tips are guaranteed to save you many times the cost of this video while inspiring you to work toward getting “out there” as soon as possible.
“Lin and Larry are at it again. Their new video, “Cost Control,” entices you in with answers to that age-old question, “What does it cost to go cruising?” And then they fill your head with all sorts of notions about seamanship, maintenance, provisioning, living aboard and a boatload of other aspects of the voyaging life. To make sure you get your money’s worth; they’ve also included stunning sailing footage, glorious landfalls, gorgeous boats, and “interludes” featuring friends playing sea tunes. Then just when they’ve told you how to save on every aspect of your trip, they turn around and show you how to spend wisely and have fun. Very informative. Very entertaining.” — Mark Pillsbury, editor of Cruising World
