Might want to check your original post, which lists the boat at 6500 tonnes, rather than 6500 lbs.

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.

Zephyr-

Might also want to post your e-mail address in non-machine readable form. williamdwyer at usa dot net or something like that...since spambot web crawlers will be more than happy to pick up the e-mail address and start spamming you.

I have made the trip once before in a 48 footer, no way in the world would you get me out in a 30. But if you go my suggestion is hurricane not withstanding (need a radio, satelite phone, etc to monitor weather) research the prevailing wind. During our journey it was SE which prevents a direct shot, choices were either go to Cancun or Intercoastal, The intercoastal trip wasn't bad, but your looking at motoring.

I think I have my crew for now - thanks guys for looking, see you out there.

Scary that they have the uscg info online, but at least it is the previous owner, not me... I wonder if I can have that removed from public databases. It might reduce my junkmail when the registration changes on my boat.
