Re: How to go for 1 or 2 year cruise?
I was under the impression after reading many threads about bluewater boats and the like that hunter/catalina/beneteau were cheap coastal cruiser and should be avoid if considering taking on the sea.
Lots of people cruise the Caribbean in Catalinas and Benes. I would not automatically cross them from your list unless you really want to make long ocean passages. And if I was a sailor experienced in deep sea sailing I would not be afraid to take a well equipped Catalina 30 across Atlantic. Many such passages were made by sailors.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
