Re: Hi, all! :)

For me, a lot of it is "living space", but safely from point a-z is also very important!!

Re: Hi, all! :)

a Tanzer 28 beats a OI33 for living space, but neither one would be my first choice for Norway sailing, unless you like a very short season.
One word- pilothouse. Trust me.

Re: Hi, all! :)

I learned an expression in Norway years ago, "Det finns ikke dårlig vær, men bare dårlig klær!"... so I've adapted! Directly translated it means "There's no bad weather, but only bad clothes!" lol

Re: Hi, all! :)

Welcome aboard. There are a couple of OutIslands for sale in the Virgin Islands. Check Craigs list out. You will do fine on one.

Thanks! Will look into it, but will also try to get as much feedback (and experience) as I can, beforehand!

Re: Hi, all! :)

Even the best clothes will barely make an OI sufferable in norway, and apparel has damn little impact on seakeeping, rigging, tankage and comfort on a transatlantic passage.

Re: Hi, all! :)

That's what research is for! I also wanna find some people to sail with in the gulf coast area to get the feel of other boats as well, as someone suggested earlier... it may still be a year before I even manage to get the boat for the crossing. I hope not, but prepared for that.

If I complete one project a day, in 7 days... I call it "multi-tasking"!

Re: Hi, all! :)

Smart move. get as much seatime as possible on as many boats as possible before you pull the trigger. Don't be afraid to look north of the gulf as well. You bring the boudin and etouffee, I'll provide the boat.

Re: Hi, all! :)

You provide the boat and I'll cook every day! I promise.... We're using paper plates and stuff though! I hate doing dishes! lol Cajun food is my specialty!
