Looking on the insurance side if you read the I.M.O's report on what an ocean going vessel should have and apply it your insurance will be greatly reduced. It is reduced even further if you hold a relevent qualification e.g MCA/RYA Yachtmaster.
As for those suggesting sextant it's all well and good if you know how to use one. God knows i've forgotten the only people i know personally who can Teach it!

This is a good thread that might serve the community well by being stickied. I know I plan to re-visit this thread for ideas as time goes on.

Re: Budget Cruising/Bluewater Cruising

I am also looking to sail for a few months- and being the post graduate student, I dont have much money. So I am looking for the financially efficient version of this, CruisingDad's thread. I am looking to outfit a 1950's boat with virtually no instruments.
Handheld gps, vhf, depth finder.

Any recommendations?

Heh. There's LOTS of boats out there that will last a few months for virtually nothing. And by "virtually nothing", I'm talking about 25' O'Days for about $2000-4000, WITH trailers. Look on Craigslist anyplace far enough north that people will want boats out of water for four months and not want to pay storage fees and you'll find them. They're crap, you don't want to go out of radio range of someone that can come get you, but you'll get your couple of months out of them.
