Didn't But the Bayfield :|

Well,

After much emotional struggle and going back and forth on the decision, No Bayfield 32c, for now

Since I am crossing the Atlantic in a week, and will spend at least the next month out of the country and in Europe I think this is a wiser decision.

A month non-stop on the Atlantic should give me a better idea of what I really want in an offshore boat... and, if I am in love with the dream or the reality of offshore sailing

I will have a Satellite phone with me, maybe my girlfriend can log-in to Sailnet and update you on where I am in the Ocean after I call her

As long as you feel you are doing the right thing, then it IS the right thing. Good luck with your Trans-Atlantic, and hope you enjoy it.

You'll be fine. Their will always be another one. Wombat , for what it's worth, reckons you made the right decision. Damn I envy you your upcoming voyage. Enjoy !

If it makes you feel any better, I once bought a boat just before going off on an overseas business trip. While I was away a storm blew up, she got caught under a wharf, ripped the stern out of her and it cost me $20,000 to repair.

Good luck. I agree that an ocean trip has the strong possibility of realigning one's tastes in boats (particularly a May passage...brrr!)

Probably the biggest danger is that you'll be convinced you need a 40 footer.

It'll all work out for the best, Kacper - Hopefully this offshore passage is everything your wished for... and, yes, it will likely change your outlook on boats and life in general.

Best of Luck, fair breezes.

Is it that cold on the Ocean in May? We are not taking the North route to the Azores but a more southerly one.

CAptain said shoul be between 12 - 18 Celsius ( I dont know what that is in Fahrenheit, but it is barable, 18 is pretty high and almost enough to take your shirt off in the sun.
