Born in and from Montana and I cut trees for a living (landlubber as it gets from dirt, dust and rocks) but now looking to move to Florida
with the misses (and she isn't kicking and screaming just yet, I believe this to be a good sign).
The question is what are good seaworthy
(offshore) boats? Im trying to make a list.
The Plan is to buy a sailboat and sail across the Atlantic and the rest of the world (avoiding pirate-ville by going around the Cape of Good Hope). I've been doing loads of research
& have taken a few classes
off of Marina Del Rey, CA | ASA101 103 & 104, so I have gotten my feet wet, a bit.
I plan to "Go small, go simple, go now!" I sailed a Beneteau
first 38s5 a nice "salty" boat as some would say. I also said a Hunter
45 which felt too much to me like an RV on water
On my list of a basic seaworthy
(modified to not breach as I hear that's bad)
+Sloop or Cutter
+30-40ft (I'd prefer around 35-38ft)
(I'm leaning toward steel
something like a Goderich 35 or Freya)
+Priced around $30-$70
+Pilothouse look a plus
+Clipper look also a plus or bowspit
Anyways I'm basically looking for any advice on a good, solid boat that can take care of herself. Thanks
