29ft cruising

As I recall both were full keeled and neither got away with making the trip without repairs. My boat is a 29 Lancer. She was built in 1978 and here hull is heavey enough for such a trip and I wouldn''t be so timid that I would never take her off shore, But before I did I would up grade all my standing rigging and add a steering vane, and afew more heavey weather sails. Oh yes I would put a sail drive back in her NOT the Peice of **** OMC she came with but a nice new deciel. THen I would feel as secure as I would in any small craft attempting such a trip.
