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.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
