Re: 45' + blue water cruiser

Just a question to everyone reading this thread, why have Valiant, Pacific Seacraft yachts been excluded. After 1985 the blister issue with the valiants was sorted and they where made right up to 2011. They are a blue water boat and setup perfectly for singlehanded sailing and have 2 to 3 people on board. Also I like the look of Pacific Seacraft yachts, I am planning on getting a Valiant 42 or a Pacific Seacraft 40 to 44. I am looking at doing the same sort of sailing as you mentioned. And with the dingy issue porta boat are a option. Very light and folds away to nothing. But when will a boat manufacture incorporate a jetski into the boat, or allow one to be loaded on deck. (weight could be a bit high)
Cheers Bubbles
