yeah, 21 yr. old looking to see if a 26' islander excalibur is good for circumnavigat
this is my first post since i am new to the site but i recently boiught a 26' islander excalibur that i now live on. I modified her with a refrigerator that slides out from the small cabin that has the head(very ingenious of me i think), solar panels, lots of shelves with high walls, etc. I have takin lots or all i should say, sailing lessons so i think i am soon ready. i feel she is a strong boat so i was just wondering what every one with more experience thinks. Is she capable of such a journey? I would hate to sell her to buy a contessa 26 like Aebi since i found her boat cramped. I have made my boat into a home but i think my life is a bit more important. Just wondering what everybodys thoughts are. Also amy supplies/ advice any seasoned circumnavigators have are welcome. Anybody lookin to join me is also welcome to write me. There is very little information about islander 26s.
