My girlfriend and I (along with our labrador retriever) are planning on taking off this upcoming winter (2011-2012) living aboard
my tartan 30. We will be leaving the Chesapeake Bay
season, and ending up in the Virgin islands
, hopefully. The boat is in great shape and amongst other things, I am planning on replacing the Atomic 4 with a diesel engine
. Has anyone made this trip before on a Tartan 30 with 2 people and a dog? Any specific advice on this would be really helpful.
What we want to know is if you have done this trip on a T 30 or a similar boat, what would you have done differently?
