Re: Big Question, need answers...

If it is something you really want to do--do it and to hell with what anyone says. Only you will know when you are ready, and staying in the confines of bays, coasts, rivers, etc...will constantly remind you if you are ready or not to cross the Gulf Stream, cruise Caribbean, or cross an ocean.

Re: Big Question, need answers...

Others have done what the OP wants to do, some like Shane Acton made it and others became a 'captain calamity' calling for rescue on day 3.

Some disapear.

It can be done but not many will make it, the left overs from abandoned dreams can be found rotting away in many a harbour.

BTW the skills and mental toughness of the sailor in the boat matter more than the boat.
