t4li3sin So that makes it a 23 footer with a wheel helm. That leaves you with a lot of room doesnt it ? Ohh, and an inboard engine. I can see all the space from here, Ahahah !

By the way, Im all for it. And if you dont want to become a burden, then dont bring any form of communication along, they wont even know if you sink so they wont have to "come out of their way" to rescue you like your friend says. Hell that'd probably shut him right up dont you think ? Ahahah ! It's all good fun. Some people climbed El captain, 1000 meters of rock face, without ropes. Who are the others to tell them otherwise ? Let them mind their own business. What's the suicide rate anyways ? I think if every person who commits suicide would do something crazy instead, a who lot more of em would be alive today. Putting your life at risk for something greater gives it meaning.

Thats all I have to say about this.
Keep the spirit!

willdadd Thanks for the info guys, I don't know what you'd consider experienced, but I'm sure mine would be enough to get some worried comments

I'm going to hopefully take her around the island this summer and see how that goes.

I'm not sure if you's are familar with the G23, its also the 21st anniversary edition, with wheel helm, inboard lister petter, diesel heater, very well equipped

sailingdog Depends on the boat, its condition, the experience of the captain, crew, weather forecast, etc.

sailingdog This is a bit pessimistic.... Plenty of 20-30' LOA boats have made passages down the western side of the Americas... and a few have even done the Horn..

Ah... thought it said JJ Taylor, not JT Taylor.. My bad.
