Good follow up Brian.
I guess I missed the holding tank specs and I defer to your left coast experience as for the need of radar (for fog) as I am from the east coast of the US. Plenty of fog here off season and more in Maine on up.
I was merely trying to round up an ocean going vessel's expected equipment. I still think that a SAT phone or SSB would be nice to have as cell phones do not work so well a good distance offshore. EPIRB, yes, if you need to go there.
At least we agree that a propane oven/stove would be an improvement over an alcohol stove. Most of the safety stuff I suggested is just really nice to have for a long blue water sail but not absolutely necessary.
I still think a 12 HP engine might not be enough in certain conditions.
It is nice to have your bases covered when you are out there.
