what determines a coastal cruiser???
Jeff: your remark of there is no universally correct answer is right on the money!!
From a cruiser''s view.I see many more "this is what we have;this is what we will use"
cruisers out there,than cruisers with Ocean
Cruising Specific boats.It is sort of like
which is best a brown egg or a white one!!
Under any normal conditions almost all boats can circumnavigate,see the articles about
Catalina 30''s doing it!!Under adverse conditions any boat can flounder or be flipped.See once is enough by Miles Smeeton!
