Re: I was told that for safety offshore you need 45
^^^ you never know how the sickness thing is going to play out. Great lakes crossing in May, 35 ft boat, not just rough, but it was cold too. Had a 10 month old with us, so he had to stay below for the cold, but all other adults were too seasick to go below. They would become incapacitated with sickness if they went below. So, all the adults except me (the owner and skipper) had to remain in the cockpit while the skipper hung out below with the baby. Worked okay because my nav station was down below and there was one other strong sailor on board up on deck, but it was an unusual set of circumstances.
