how much experience do I need
My Idea which I will take about a year from now to plan. Iam thinking about a 25 to 35 footer used boat. Ill have around 15000 dollars to spend on the boat. I have been on the water all my life ,but lakes not sailing, fishing.I want to sail from Boston to Florida. keep the boat about a mile from shore. I have no real sailing experience, but feel that I can do it. Am I fooling myself. If I have the boat and it is seaworthy, what can I expect. Iam sometimes impulsive, but I wont quit if things get tough. How much sailing experience do I need to pull this off??
