Re: Cruisers: what kind of trips can be made by non-bluewater boats in a weather wind
Well, this is all relative to your need of (perceived) safety.
The boat you have is probably about as seaworthy as the Santa Maria was. Maybe even a bit more.
The one that ran aground?
Internal ballast, leaky wooden construction, nothing close to a flush deck, not much of a keel and nothing like an effectively shaped rudder, no drogue or sea anchor invented yet...
Those guys had cohones man...
and a very high percentage never came back...
