what determines a coastal cruiser???

Ahoy , at the risk of being silly or unhelpfull I think you need as strong a boat as you can afford. Take jeffs considered opinion to heart as he really is a warehouse of information . Beyond that you have got to feel comfortable with your choice and seriously sea trials in the bad weather we have here on the SW coast (summer squalls)is about as good a test as any for boat and man. If you like I''ll take you out on my wreck of a project boat and show you what I mean. Worse that can happen is we both get killed and my vessel sails it self home!
