Pearson 323 - suitable bluewater cruiser??
406 Epirb, check. Liferaft, check. SSB? Wazzat?
I have over a year to learn and buy what I need, and I have only begun to plan.
Among my current inventory or to-buy list:
Wooden pegs (for sealing leaks), new through-hulls, engine overhall, new standing rigging, some kind of weather fax device, 3 GPS untis, GPS chartplotter, Loran, sea anchor, life-sling, safety harnesses and lines, and of course the 406 epirb and liferaft.
I''m sure I left something out, but like I said, I have a year.
What I really want to know is people''s opion on the suitability of the boat for this type of passage.
