Re: Sailor from Long Island

Chris,
No problem! You're more than welcome to come up to NPT and do some sailing with me... Bring your partner of course or not if she's not able to. I like the plan! But I think you need to enter something like the Marion Bermuda race and get some ocean experience before attempting a delivery from the Med to NY. Looking for the right boat takes time and you can't buy without survey and sea trials and fitting out with upgrades probably. You need spares and lots of familiarity with a boat you are going to cross the pond in. I think FL is one place to find inexpensive boats. But anyplace where a couple divorces or the owner decides he's too old can be a good buy. I don't think a crossing makes sense for a shakedown cruise. ;-)
