We did it, so can you!

First time boat owners, we. Safety gear and 2 experienced sailing friends the first leg (1 day), then on our own for the second leg (2 days), all under motor. It wad an adventure that teaches you a lot about your boat along the way to your home port. Good luck!

I had the previous owner come with my on my maiden voyage. We had to go through the Ballard Locks in Seattle. While I had done this on my smaller boat, I was a bit hesitant to do it by myself on the bigger bought. All came through unscathed. He thanked me for the chance to be on his boat for his "final" voyage. All good advice above. If in doubt ask for some help.

Life is a short journey, filled with emptiness and pain. Get all the sailing and booty you can.

Check the survey report, make sure you repair everything be repaired immediately. That is what survey reports are for. Safety of the boat should be checked before the transfer. It is never a good idea to transfer the boat to your location and try to repair her in your home land.

If you cannot sail in your area with the current condition of the boat, you should not try to transfer it. The distance will be much more and failures are more prone to happen
