Re: Big Question, need answers...

Inexperienced sailors can sail small, poorly prepared boats when close to shore b/c you can get accurate weather forcasts for at least a few days. If you are on a 30 day passage, you cannot predict if you will run into some really nasty stuff, and need to have the boat and skills to be safe.
