You can find accounts of coastal cruising in small boats. I don't have a link, but there is a couple cruising Central America in a modified SeaPearl (21'?) and blogging. I read in Messing About in Small Boats (magazine) about a guy cruising the Bahamas in a boat under 20'. I did some coastal cruising solo in a 20' weekender (Pennant Sloop) halfway around Long Island NY. That boat had no motor, no plumbing, no wiring. A portapotti, cooler, camp stove and two five gallon water bottles did fine. I hopped along shore in the ocean and the Sound, took her through NY Harbor and Hell Gate. You can do it if you are careful.
