Re: I was told that for safety offshore you need 45
Friends have crossed the Atlantic six times in their Hood 38 centerboarder. They couldn't get insurance to go more than 150 miles offshore until they had logged several trips from the NY metro to Newfoundland. They're currently planning a sprint circumnavigation.
Webb Chiles is sailing a Moore 24, which Ron Moore, who co-designed and built the Moore 24, described the 2,050 lb. boat to me as "an elegant hot rod".
