A run up to Barclay Sound should give you a good practice run.

Thumbs up Re: Amuse me, sailing small boat offshore.

Hey northoceanbeach, at In Memoriam Walt Murray you can find downloads of a lot of interesting home built self steering gear info, might amuse yourself for a lot of rain days working out something suitable for your application. All the best to you.

Re: Amuse me, sailing small boat offshore.

It's not just young people that are taking small boats on long passages.
This blog is from a couple of retired people that sailed their Dana 24 from the PNW to NZ. Karen and Jim's Excellent Adventure

Usually older people want more of the creature comforts of a bigger boat, but the adventurous don't let age set them back!

They were able to carry stores for 2 people on a 24' boat from Baha to the South Pacific Islands.

They have shipped the Dana 24, and themselves, back to San Francisco on a freighter, and they will continue their adventures in the PNW.

I thought it was a pretty good adventure.
