Re: How much planning do you do for an extended cruise?

Sicily is quiet expensive to get hauled out so a lot of people here hop the 150 miles across there to get the work done. It is cheaper, duel is less than half price and they apparently do a good job....

How much planning do you do for an extended cruise?

We will soon be leaving our winter berth to go cruising for the next five or six months.
