Default Budgeting Annual Boat Expenses?

So I'm in looking hard for a Cafe or Gun, and I'm wondering what everyone budgets for the annual costs of operating their boats? I know how much gas costs and that it varies with use, I know what storage is going to cost me and I have a pretty good idea on insurance. Other than those what should I plan on for maintenance/repairs/ upkeep? Is there a general rule of thumb? Just wondering what I should plan on setting aside per month ?

Is this a trick question?? $10,000 a month should cover it.
