I put my hand up as a "non dock queen".
It does indeed depend what you are pricing. In the US you have access to cheap oil, here we're looking at a minimum of $1.35 a litre, so on the lowest setting the oil range is $5.00 a day (no cooking). In the southern PNW there are roughly 6 weeks a year when the heat is off.....farther north it's 24/7/365......
But wood is available free on the beach, just go pick it up.
Another problem with the aluminum Colvin boat will be getting any heat in the aft cabin. A duct through the engine room with a computer fan will help, but it will always be chilly. Tri cabin boats don't work that well in some climates.
