List of offshore boats and brief comments

From John Neal Mahina Expedition - Selecting A Boat for Offshore Cruising
Lots of good information on his site too.
One mans opinion of course.

Very funny. Reminds me of the time John Neale came to my office trying to tell me that skeg hung rudders and fin keels were not seaworthy. Oh well, he finally figured it out. The next thing you know he'll buy a new H-R with a spade rudder.

There are STILL a few that think one needs a full keel prop in a hole, 12-1 SA/Disp ratio to sail the ocean blue!

Personally i would like to get there in reasonable length of time. Most of us would prefer a well built boat, no matter the design frankly!

Well I just finished reading your book. Now I know less than before I started.
Seriously I think I'll have to read it four times.
The first time through was just a quick entertainment read for the stories.
The next time through I'll focus on all the number and ratios and formula's (Maybe I'll put that pass off a while, its going to hurt)
Another read will be to parse out all the family tree stuff and boat names and grandfather, father, son relationships.
And a fourth read to attempt to apply all of this to some actual boats to see if I can come to any conclusions that make sense in real life.

Serious effort Bob thanks for writing it.
