johnshasteen After two Force 10 storms (48 hours in the first and 36 hours in the second - both having winds 50-60, gusting higher and seas 28-30ft) and many lesser storms in Paloma, I'm comfortable with her 30 feet on deck size. A smaller boat would have been problematic and a much larger boat would have been too much to handle.

Please note: a Blue Water Boat is big enough to carry all of your provisions and needs, while you are crossing one of the big ponds on this planet.
The above will only be on a small lake.

Doesn't there have to be someone on the boat?

If you can pick your weather window, itís not all that hard to make that leap on any half-way decently maintained and constructed boat, including a 25 foot Hunter.

Respectfully,

People sail in the opposite direction from Cuba to Florida on a lot less!

No Brian, that's nothing, you have to really be able to handle the big waves to call it a blue water boat, just look at those waves!

wind_magic If this is okay with you then I think you have a blue water boat.
