i2f- I don't intend to come across that way. I see risk as a fact of life. And I just hope there is an easy button within reach at the time. I went on a charter fishing trip on Lake Michigan once. A storm blew in- 10' waves, etc. I must respect the Great Lakes. But technology is wonderful. I can easily keep a close eye on the weather and head for port- or don't leave it in the first place.
I do intend to buy a laptop and an 'air card' to have comm and info. My sticking point is that I wish for video- larger screen and a video card. Which relates to price.
I do have some mechanical ability. I actually built a chopper like ya see on TV. Before they made a TV show about it lol. Rode it for 17 yrs too.
This boat is a challenge as well as a dream. I am not bound by my intentions. If necessary I can find a boatyard where I can put her on the hard and work on her myself. It would be a drudge but also interesting. And be ready to make the cruise next year.
