I would like to refer you to the post I put up above the one you just posted.

In my opinion, I think you need to state your max money and desire to cross oceans, and leave the size out of it. In my opinion, a 40+ foot blue water boat ready to go for under 100k will be very difficult to find. 50K?? No way. Perhaps you should really consider just staying in this hemisphere. THer is more to see here than you can see in a lifetime.

Being out for several days at a time is not a problem on most coastal cruisers.

I will let someone else answer the Hunter question. I feel I should not answer that question.

In all honesty, sailing and cruising and offshore work is not rocket science... but requires a lot of information gathering - and in the case of offshore, a lot of experience. Working a farm is tough work. I am selling my 8 acre country house right now, and I will tell you it is a lot harder than anything I have ever done on a sailboat. You can do it, but you have a lot of learning to get through. Read through a bunch of the old posts on buying a boat, Hunters, offshore/blue water, etc.

PS Farmers are the most resourceful people in this country. You can do it...
