Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...
if your kind of cruising requires you to carry enough canned food and water to be at sea for months, then you should choose your boat accordingly.
Interestingly our cruising doesn't require us to be at sea for months, yet we find it is necessary to still have a somewhat well stocked boat. Shops are not handy when cruising.(At least where we cruise).
Of course if you are taking all your worldly possessions to sea with you, a big heavy tub might be exactly what you need! That certainly isn't what I would want.
We also don't have a lot of worldy possessions on the boat, honestly just simple normal stuff and what an average sailor, doing average cruising would deem essential on boat.
This stuff adds up more than you would think...
