Nc

I lived for 1/2 a year in Oriental back in 1991. Had a power boat and visited Morehead City frequently. Made a trip to Okracoke once across the sound. That's a lot of water.

You can do it!

You can definitely do it.

However you should put some thought into getting the right boat, the right trailer, and developing a routine at the dock. I learned to launch a J/24 mostly by myself,...

Well, I vote no on the license. I put an 18' powerboat up high and dry once because I missed a buoy. Great experience. Something that inspired me to have better charts, and to go slow if I was in...

We took a dog out on the J/24... he didn't like it when we tacked... we about lost him over the side several times. All in all, most of the trip will be spent focusing on the dog.

200k hours?

I don't know what is a typical lifespan for a diesel, but for an (gas) airplane engine it's 2000 hours. Typically 10-50 hrs for break-in.

I'd be impressed to see any engine hit 200k hours.
