Re: Opinions needed

Pblais

More good info, my brother and his wife are in a sailing school right now, I plan to do one in the future with my GF, I am just trying to fit all of the things I need to do,line up etc ,into the next two or three years,my projected start time. I know that may be a tall order. I live when I am not working in Sosua DR, that is about 60 klicks east of Luperon, I will be down there in about three weeks and plan a trip there.I wish I knew some one that I could do some extended cruising with, but that is pretty unlikely, my dumb @ss uncle sunk his 50ft Hunter at the dock,ROTFLMAO LOLOLOLOL. tip...Kerosun heaters and drunk do not mix.Sorry I'm not that insensitive,but damn, do not operate outside of your abilities,pouring fuel into a lit heater while hammered,WTF??

Back to the topic at hand, keep the input comming, I am compiling info at a fast rate, between this site and all the books I'm reading and my plans to link up with a couple people in luperon who have sailed the world ,I may get enough info to just kill myself real fast instead of slow and painful. BtC

Re: Opinions needed

If you do go custom make sure it was designed by an excellent naval architect and built at a yard by people who really know what they are doing. Avoid the home builds.

Re: Opinions needed

My tentative plan as of now is a production boat, just need to narrow it down to a manufacture or two. Thanks

In an earlier post, something tough I can bounce off of stuff.
