Displacements

okay, to take under consideration, will want that book.

then what are reasonable displacements for 'heavy cruisers' of the 37' to 40' range?

I am trying to weed out boats on the market unfit for serious cruising, so far looking at tankage, displacements, cant find figures on rigging size components, thru-haul fittings etc, such things arnt even mentioned on YW listings other then for some tankage and about half displacement and ballast. Majority of attention is on dockaminium appeal.

Its a slow process. Eventually will find a cruiser that can make that passage from the Bahamas to the Azores.
