Re: Beneteau First 367 for Coastal Cruising
Cruising for a week or two is not a lot different than cruising for 6 or 8 weeks. One becomes very accustomed to it, and as long as good provisioning and shelter is readily available I can't see why doing 2-3 months wouldn't be fine. And our boat, though better setup with storage, is not nearly as roomy as either of the boats under discussion. In fact we often 'plan' to return early to catch some of the 'city summer stuff' but never seem to manage.
After our typical 6-8 weeks aboard each summer, our 1300 sq ft condo seems palatial.. at least for a few days.
