Valiente has a spectacular aura about Valiente has a spectacular aura about
Too true..."you'll get my helm when you pry my cold, dead hands off it" could be the motto around here.

I think once a 21st century man learns how to use a messenger line to re-reeve a halyard without going up the mast, he believes he's in touch with his pioneer ancestors or something...no man is an island, but if you're lucky, you're a center cockpit!

Chartplotter, vhf radio, flashlite, handheld GPS. I think that is the bare minimum.

Uhnnn, sorry about this. I'm very new...

We are in the process of purchasing a used Beneteau 38' o 40' Center Cockpit with the goal to live aboard here in Florida (Tampabay area) Like the Hunters but also but would like to here some sailor words about it. I'm familiar with Beneteau's, but not with Hunters.

Also, can someone tell me how I can open a new post?

Thanks

Legally? Nav lights...

I would consider a main and spare VHF radio and GPS as a realistic minimum also. Spares should be self powered (hadhelds which use their own batteries that you have a bunch of).

But I am not a blue water sailor, just a small boat dreamer. I love these "minimum" questions, though...

I never thought of or considered lights as minimum electronics but basic systems.
