Re: West to East - Trans-Pacific to Japan

There are a number of Yamaha's in the puget sound region. They were imported to this area for a bit, then they found they could sell their build level to the Asian market, so why bother shipping over here. From what I have seen, they do have a good build quality. If one were to choose the trip timing etc, one should be able to sail it from here to there.

Ericson, islander, jeanneau, Beneteau, Catalina, to name a few other fin keel style boats that would make the trip also. All frankly with similar build quality. Pacific seacraft is another that would do the trip, but built probably a bit heavier, not sure it is that much stronger per say.

I know I am forgetting a few, CS, Tartan, C&C are a few others that popped into my brain.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
