Re: Cruising in a Hunter?

Kd3 has some good advice. That is a long trip and not an easy one. I would do it with my Bristol if I had to but would imagine that it would not be whole lot of fun - and that is with a 20 ton boat that is very solidly-built and well-equipped. I think I would go for the trucking route instead. Might even be cheaper when you consider the cost of getting your boat ready and the cost of the trip including fixing the stuff that breaks on the way. If you want to do some bluewater (or semi-bluewater) exploring there are lots of opportunities once you are on the east coast.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
