Re: Boat for Pacific Passage - yes or no?

If you have limited time to look. unless you luck on to a boat pre-prepared, you are into the practical proposition of taking the best or least worse available.
Few boats are blue water equipped or ready, probably more so in that age price range and getting to that will be your major expense. I am thinking of things such as a windvane which will take time to fit.
I also wonder about your route and timing specifically switching hemispheres and hurricane seasons. I imagine that you are not talking about this year.
