Re: Abaco to Beaufort, NC
I am sure the reasons people want a buddy boat on an ocean passage vary widely; however, as first year liveaboards the reason for us is mostly meeting similar people and sharing the experience. My wife and I are aware that once we depart the chance that the 2 or more boats will be within 25 miles is slim. Most of the people we meet say that time spent with a buddy boat is a little before, even less during, and a lot after. We don't have anything to lose and maybe we will meet people who will be lifelong friends.
That's good enough reason for me to spend a minute tossing out the idea.
