Re: Sailboat ready to cruise?

There is a big difference between having all the gear you need and being 'cruise ready', whatever that means. Certainly there is a continuum of boats from junk to gems but don't think you can buy a boat and take off. There is actually a big advantage in having to work on your boat before you leave since you will know the details better for when something goes wrong in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
