Just because you survived / made it, does not mean that was the smart or responsible way to do it. Some people drink and drive and survive too..... some people do a lot of things.

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

So that couple gets into a few days of bad weather / rough seas, and doesn't get dangerously tired? Because they know their boat so well? Really?

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

It is adorable to really believe that leaving the dock in a 'window' means you won't experience some bad weather.

If you are not prepared for many days & nights of BAD conditions, do not go...

Re: How much maintenance and repair, really?

Yes, the more amenities you have onboard, the higher the cost:

FYI.... we bought this CT for $240K, which I could easily claim was $40K too much, i.e., more than I wanted to pay - I tried real...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

So, some like to solo sail. Some are lucky enough to have a wife and therefore limit their crew to 'her', and some would bring more crew for longer crossings.

Re: Downside of living aboard

Well, not all 'slips' are like that. At Boston Yacht Haven, we are on a dock which does not have anyone on either side of us.

Re: Smallest boat you can live with

We really "require" the dimensions and configuration of our current boat for our sailing and living comfort and safety. Which mirrors what a "charter" customer would also expect.

Mike,

Well, we are liveaboards and do some chartering, so these were our minimum requirements for our true / long term comfort, and for our business success.

We could have afforded a tad more,...
