Re: My last little bit of planning

Personaly I would like 2 reefs for my main.
your standard 6 gal fuel tank should be pleanty of gas. I would recomend a small 1gallon reserve tank. it will fit in cockpit locker. and is easy to carry up road to gas stations.
Worked for me on a C&C 24 with honda 10hp.
I don't like boat water. a store bought water bottle is nice. refillable at potable water taps and can be taken ashore in dingy.
I found the square one with spigot worked well.
A stainless gas barbeque is a must have. you will use far more than stove.
If you are going north.
Canadian tide and current atlas and tide tables.
There is also a Gulf Island, Desolation Sound, Crusing Charts
Chart Atlas saves a lot of space but not cheep.
Good pair of Bino's I like 10 x 50 most use 7 x 50.
HBC compas. plotter or P rule or triangles. pencil and drawing comp.
Digital Camera.
