Re: Bluewater Sailboat Question

your budget is not really up to snuff for a livable, seaworthy blue water boat. Then there is the make it self sufficient thing...that alone could easily eat up your boat budget and then some.

All that aside, an older, well maintained boat may do the trick but as the others posted....a 30' is just not large enough for 5 or 6 to sleep and stand watch, unless it is for just a weekend thing. And then you all better be really good friends....tight quarters will bring out the worst in any one, especially those who have never been aboard a boat, or expect shore side comforts.

all the best
