Great for coasts though, and I imagine you could find a couple of them for under 10k. Crossing oceans is a whole different ball game.

There's also a thread on here with a long list of bluewater boat suggestions but I can't find it now! Maybe someone remembers what it's called?

It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."
