what boat would you take to live on while visiting a deserted island in the middle of
Just a dream i'm contemplating making a reality as I finally have the means and i'm young still. What boat woudl you take to a deserted island if you inteded to spend atleast a few months living on the island and the boat. Ideally, i'd like a smaller, 30 foot range boat. Comfort is mildly important, storage capcity is not a huge concern as i'm the only one going and i've yet to check out a boat which didn't have enough.
I woudl want somethign that coudl stay anchored sfely somewhere for a long period of time and withstand and be very safe in heavy heavy storms if they came about and so forth. I'd love to keep the initial purchase to be a sailable boat in teh 20k range which i woudl be workign on for the next few years.
I love the look of tartans but of course safety goes over looks, i'm thinking a westsail might be a safer option, ors omething along that design lines. speed is a concern though.
I spent 4 months living off the land in canada for a summer. I want to give it a shot on a deserted islan for a as longa s I can (keeping a safety net on teh boart for return of course) I have looked into some purification systems as well for water, thats my primary concern.
Also, if you knwo where I could find some charted, or preferably uncharted desert islands that woudl be awsome.
