I have exchanged emails with a guy who took one like mine to the Bahamas. Does that make it a blue water boat?

arbarnhart Here is a $4000 31' boat ready to sail:

Golden Hind 31 Foresale

Says it just needs cosmetic things done and has crossed the Atlantic 4 times.
NFI, just saw it browsing.
That ad will likely go away soon, so here is the text:

Golden Hind 31 Foresale - $4000 (Wilmington)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: 2008-07-29, 10:05PM EDT


This is a true bluewater boat. Golden Hinds once held the record for the most ocean crossings of a single type. This boat has made three Atlantic crossings itself. Built in Portsmouth England by Terry Erskine Yachts in 1969. The hull is made of mahogany and plywood and then glassed. She is the best sailing boat I have ever sailed a real pleasure. They say she sleeps 5 that would be very cosy but could be done. I would say its more like 4.

SAILS

1 MAIN NEW 2004

MAIN SAIL COVER NEW 2004

1 GENOA NEW 2004

1 JIB GOOD CONDITION

1 STORM JIB GOOD CONDITION

ENGINE

LISTER DIESEL REBUILT 2000

EQUIPMENT

LIFE VESTS, REVERSE PLOW ANCHOR, SEA ANCHOR, BIMINI TOP, POT-A-POTTIE, DEPT FINDER, COMPASS, GAS GRILL, BILGE PUMP, SHORE POWER CORD AND THREE BATTERIES



This boat is in good mechanical condition ready to sail but she needs a lot of TLC. There are some minor soft spots on the deck under the life lines these need to be removed and fixed. The boat needs to be repainted. Bottom paint was done in 2006. Cabin needs paint and cushions It has all the old cushions and they are still useable but are dated. Excelent restoration project for someone who wants something they can sail and restore at the same time. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of history. The TLC this boat needs is cosmetic not structural. You can take this boat sailing right now no work required. Sail her this summer and restore her this fall.

eMKay There was a sound Contessa 26 for sale here for $3900, I looked at the boat and it's beautiful. You then have $6000 to outfit it for offshore sailing. The boat sold quickly but is still sitting where it was...I'm waiting for it to be for sale again

sgkuhner Don't rule out the Seawind 30. It is a fabulous ocean going boat and she only draws 4'3". Here is a website that tells you how, "She'll Cross an Ocean if You Want To" It is an excellent article about our circumnavigation in a Seawind 30 back in the early 70s. I believe that you can pick them up for about your price range.

sailingdog Webb Chiles made it 7/8's of the way around the world or so in a Drascombe Lugger, which is an 18' open boat—no cabin, no motor. I don't think it was what I'd call fun or relaxing...but he's a good enough sailor to pull it off. I don't think I'd even try. That doesn't make the Drascombe Lugger a bluewater boat in any way or form—although Webb did accomplish some major bluewater passages in one.

There are many small sailboats that with some modification would be somewhat suitable for a bluewater passage. No boat is going to be perfect for a bluewater passage, especially if your budget is only $10,000. The smaller the boat, the more prudent it is to wait for a decent weather, and to account for what historically happens during a given time of year.

The Cape Dory 36 is probably one of the better bluewater capable boats below 40', but one from my homeport just got its butt kicked tangling with a named storm. The captain had to be rescued by the Canadian Coast Guard during a West-to-East trans-Atlantic attempt. Does this mean a Cape Dory isn't suitable... NO... Does it mean that trying to outrun a named storm in a Cape Dory 36 is stupid... probably.
