Reality is, lots of boats will work, but if going for worst case, then any of the boats SD mentioned. Plus, I feel there are many more that in most cases, a good skipper etc, will do ok also. As you should hopefully know if a hurricane or equal is coming up the coast, so you can stay out of those situations. It would be the quick moving squall you have to deal with, and any boat will get knocked down, or run into trouble in those situations.

yea I dont think I would want bigger than 30 or smaller than 28 I have decided on that definalty unless someone comes along and gives ya a 34 ft hull of course which is quite possible 34 C&C not a full keel but I might just pick it up for the cost of moving her and new sails etc never know in this economy

A lot of the four-stroke outboards have a small alternator on them. Not as ideal for charging the batteries, since you can't put an 85 amp alternator on them, but might be enough if your' electrical needs are modest enough and you supplement them with wind/water generators and solar panels.

lets face it the deisal inboard is no doubt the way to go but on the other hand 4 stroke outboards are wonderfully dependable is there a way around the recharging of batterys using the 15hp outboard? 4 stroke outboards to me are just indestrucable wonder if they make one with a good charging system?? hmmm probly wont be a need for an outboard other than spare/emergancy but I dont think I would leave the harbor without these things radar/gps/spare motor/raft and/or dingy

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

BarryL is on a distinguished road
Hello,

If you plan on being out in open water, I would not consider an outboard. If you have to motor in bad weather, the outboard prop is likely to come out of the water and not work well. Additionally, you can't easily carry fuel, charging won't work well, etc.

An inboard, either diesel or gas, is a much better choice.

Good luck,
Barry
