Coastal Vs. Blue water

IMHO. Generally speaking, the boats will take more than the occupants. If you look at something like a Flicka (size/for/size, if in fact size is that important) they have done some marvelous voyages. I am of the opinion that the seamanship is generally the deciding factor between a disaster and a sucessful passage.

Fair Winds.
