You have a decent boat - what is the purpose of your post?
And by "production boat" do you mean "white plastic boat", which translates bolted-on keel
and spade rudder
to me? People shouldn't cruise in white plastic boats, period. Ok, so look at the success of MarkJ, you say. MarkJ is a skilled, financially endowed person, if you will. As I read it, your post asks about people who can't afford an ocean-tolerable boat and don't have the $kills to fix up a classic plastic boat: they shouldn't be cruising. If that sounds harsh then you have never met someone who lost
everything because they were trying/hoping to live a dream with inadequate resources - whether it be their own (personally or financially) and/or their equipment
Go get yourself stuck in a storm for a few days with your nice boat and analyze the stresses on you and your boat and her equipment
and then see if you still want to, or can, post about production boat verbage for people without skill $ets.
Two seconds of googling came up with this "romantic" video, there are better ones to get my point across but this is a start. And by that I mean if you can go fwd to video then the weather
is rather mild, these guys are pansys to think that is weather
a video with lame music
"They" say experience is what you get just after you need it. Don't help make that experience devastating for someone.
