Thanks for all the replies

What I learned ----

Ill definitely buy an Epirb, liferaft, autopilot, equipment to singlehand , extra batteries, sea anchor, but a water making ?? not sure

Continue to learn as much as I can about sailing the particular boat, systems, weather , etc

Ill cruise to St Thomas or PR(from Miami) with a very experienced captain or crew without the wife and kid. Then flew em in to continue

and live it up! Again it will be only a 8 months to 1 yr trip

I am looking at the 90-91 Catalina 34 because thats what I can afford (50k), its got a large cabin and its popular and made for the Caribbean

Where am I going wrong? Any other advice ? Thanks again
