Re: Make do with wrong boat
Get the boat you will want for 90% of what you will do with it. I hate to say it, but most of that 90% will be sleeping, eating, living aboard, etc. The rest will be coastal cruising, not major passages. The 10% you have to mitigate, if you don't have the perfect boat for it. For example, you may need to be very careful with your weather windows, but having no schedule helps. Drogues, emergency rudders, etc, may all provide peace of mind that you can pull off one of these infrequent longer passages, if the worst happens.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
