bjung sck5,
Cornell suggests heading ESE from Beaufort for at least 100 miles before heading south.
John,
I decided on a 6 pers. Givens in valise. It will be in the aft cockpit locker. Hopefully I will never have to find out if it was the right decision... I will however take an inflatable mattress as backup, maybe two.

It probably varies. When we came back from Abaco that way, we had a solid Gulf Stream boost nearly the entire way. We were on the rhumb line, which I think had us 300-400 miles off-shore at the furthest point.


Bernd,

What did you come up with for a final life-raft solution?

SecondWindNC There's a PSC 34 that will be leaving our dock in Washington, NC on Nov. 14 and will probably be setting out from Beaufort about the same time. Name of the boat is Gemini, owners aren't on SailNet that I'm aware of.
