Not dreaming, just shopping
. As I have sailed neither of these vessels I was asking for opinions on their capabilities from maybe someone that has sailed them. What I am looking for in a boat is something that is comfortable to live aboard and cruise
FL/ Carib and able to cross the atlantic safe nuf.
To continue on a past analogy, It appears that the seidelmann is more of a sports car and the Irwin
more of ford taurus, and neither have the jeep like qualities, so to speak, required to do long ocean crossings. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I understand the.. "you could cross the atlantic in a 55 gallon drum, with the determination and the Gods blessings" and the "to each his own" and "you don't golf with one club" etc.
I think I have my answers on those two and appreciate the time everyone has taken replying to my post.
So what would one suggest is a good offshore
make in the 32'-38' range, as Dhillen pointed out, it's best to take an offshore
coastal rather than a coastal offshore.
I saw Zeehags older post in a different thread concerning her voayage , I think across the gulf, in a seidelmann. My take was she made it, it wasn't all that pleasent of a voyage, but I couldn't tell her level of sarcasm if any.
