Re: Choosing the Perfect Boat
The Explorer 44 is a neat boat, very fast, but it can't carry enough food and water for one person, let alone two people, to make the long hops that has been proposed. There would need to be a lot more island hoping. The water almost might get by with solar panels and a water maker, but carrying enough food and gear would be very tough. The interior layout makes no sense even as a middle distance cruiser. No where to sleep where the noise and motion wouldn't beat you up quick.
