Re: West to East - Trans-Pacific to Japan

I would think keeping an eye on Hawaii and Mexico would be a good start.. there's always a few cruisers that have second thoughts, divorces, unrealistic expectations that can lead to well equipped boats available for a decent deal, just do your due diligence when transacting in certain areas.

Even San Fran might be a 'quitting spot' for some whose dreams didn't quite match reality.

Gotta say I kind of like the look of that newer Yamaha 31C - looks like they are still producing pretty nice boats - maybe not a ocean crosser, but a nice looking performance cruiser.
