25 foot cruising

"coastal Cruising" in my own definition is being not too far off shore ( no more than 8-10mi. and usually within sight of land at all times) mostly day hopping to another port in good weather. Understanding that sometimes you gotta just "stay put" and have another cocktail so having a set schedule is very hard, being able to find protection if the weather changes, having a reliable motor..and probably a few more things. Either way, if you take care of yourself, take care of your boat, respect the weather and have plan B,Plan C, and Plan D (just in case) than a 25 foot boat is a fine boat to "coastal cruise" if you can stand being close to someone else (if you have crew coming along), some extra fuel containers, extra water, and food.......
