No chartplotter (that's me), no autopilot (that's the crew), no dinghy, no radar, etcetera. It would be great to have every peice of up to date gear aboard, but it won't happen now, nor probably ever. I'm sure some will disaprove, but keep in mind that twenty years ago no cruiser would have any of this stuff, and people cruised fine before most of it was invented. We're going up the east coast of the US, we'll be fine.
While I don't plan any stops, our schedule is flexible for weather or mechanical problems, or for crew needs.
Thanks for the suggestions. You can well imagine that I've been planning this trip every day since Halloween, and kept my crew involved in the plans.
Bene, we plan on landfall at Montauk, but not stopping there. Going to Port Jeff, close to home, good transport center for the crew.
