New to the board and I would love to hear from some of you salts.
I want to buy a liveaboard
cruiser in the 36 to 30 ft range that is capable of handling blue water
and the weather
that occasionaly goes with it.
I am torn between buying
this kind of boat right off the bat as opposed to buying
more of a coastal cruiser to cut my teeth on for a few years and then
buying the bluewater boat.
Would it be sensible to just get the bluewater boat since that's what I want to end up in eventually?
Is there a difference in the types of boats as far as learning
I would probably be based out of florida
panhandle for the summer and going south to keys/carribbean in the winter.
After I gain some experience and feel confident enough to do so, I want to see the south pacific
That of course is years ahead of me but that's the long range plan.
I have been reading other threads on the Cal
boats and most of them mention the loyalty of the owners and the solid construction and safety
of the boats but yet I don't see them mentioned much in lists of bluewater cruisers.
Any and all thoughts would be welcome.
I need some advil now.....
