And as common-sense says so, you are probably right (but there is always a chance youīre wrong, so...
). Still, itīs just a "dream" project
. And before that project
converts into a boat, experience, cash saving, planning, refitting, planning again, and again... a lot of water
will pass under this bridge and a lot can change.
Beside that, the shoestring purchase budget
is because I prefer to start sooner, with a cheaper -sound- boat and spend the money
in getting it exactly as needed to such trip, than trying to save money
for the "perfect" boat and end up with a big factory thing that will still need to be adapted...at even greater costs.
I think that a small thing CAN be adapted to do it, if the people who REALLY were there can give advice on whatīs needed, whatīs redundant or just plain dockside mith
But if I donīt discuss it with everyone that I can who has ACTUALLY made it in those latitudes, I will always stick to home or dock-made theories, wonīt I?
