LOL.... Blue.. I was not saying it can't be done... more a case of doing it comfortably today...
When sailboats were used for commerce there were many routes in all seasons that were used to make a living... thats a whole lot different from doing it today.
Not many advise going S running before at the moment on here (CF) from what I've been reading... let alone heading Nth.
Not many advise taking a 22ftr across the Biscay in December either.. don't mean it can't be done....

Boat, crew, accomplices, and drugs in the capable hands of Bermuda police.
Most of us water-people think first $200,000 should go to U.S Coast Guard, to pay for search.

I dunno how law enforcement works in your part of the world, but in the parts I have encountered the seized drugs are not then sold retail to raise cash for the arresting officers / Dept.

Not officially anyway

LOL DOJ

Not done that way up here either.

The boat will become a siezed asset of the drug trade, along with any other assets of the people involved, if proven to be crime related acquisitions, if alledged persons are convicted.
