[QUOTE=Myc;2098709]I'm looking at a Sea Ray
L650 and wondering if it's suitable. It's CE-A rated but my concern is having enough fuel
Any thoughts? Can it be as safe as a trawler
1030 or if get then upgrade to 1150 not enough. What I am looking for in a Boat, is 4000 to 5000 Gal tanks
size. I would want enough fuel
to make it to s point where I can refuel, plus some extra. In looking my target range is min 3000 mile range or more. That will get me from Calif to Hawaii
2580KM with a little to spare. Prefer more however.
Also need to look at how much food
you can store. Can you carry least a months worth? Running out of food
at sea would not be the makings of a good time. I have came close to this experience while I was in the USCG. I had more meals
for my self in personal stock, then the Ship did for the crew.
Also you will need a Boat with a Water
Maker. If not you will learn the true meaning of the saying Water
every where yet not a drop to drink. Been there before. Pulled out of NYC
, and into Iceland
4 weeks later were we could get water and a shower
at last. Water tanks
was reserved for Cooking
Drinking and toilet flushing
. NO SHOWERS.
