You buy the boat & I'll (plus Admiral) will take you.
PM me before you buy the boat! Obviously it must past my personal seaworthy muster, but we can discuss this at your leisure.

I'd like suggestions on open water boats that are easy to sail and more apt to forgive when given poor instructions. Here are a few that are for sale nearby that I'm looking at: Morgan 382, 38 feet, yr 1978. A 1999 Beneteau 411, 42 ft long. A pearson 365, and a hunter 3800. Feel free to suggest other boats.

I also want to hire a patient, laid back, knowledgeable captain for a month or so for the journey to Hawaii. If anyone one has any recommendations of captains; what I should expect to pay for a month of instructional delivery; or what to look for in a captain for such a trip, I would appreciate your input.

Thanks for your time.

somebody earlier in this thread mentioned $1/mile for delivery Captain hire, is that really a good rule of thumb? I assume plus expenses.
I would have paid that for an 80 mile trip (12 hrs) in 34 deg. F weather earlier this year.

So was a boat bought and did a captain teach him/her and when is the trip to Hawaii?
