Re: Selling it all for a bluewater boat - Advice requested :)

I'm guessing that Sailboat Reviews of Offshore Cruising Yachts : Bluewaterboats.org is the correct URL.

Re: Selling it all for a bluewater boat - Advice requested :)

Look at Beneteau 46; we have been in gale force winds with no problems, except forgot to tie down the TV in the main stateroom. Very solid and comfortable for bluewater sailing. I've had people dispute this before, without owning one or even chartering one. We love our boat and trust it in all weather conditions.

FYI, there's another thread on CF called Survey 101. I suggest you have a good serious look at it if you enjoy your classes. Bear in mind, San Diego is a very mild weather sort of place; you might want to check out the ocean there in a winter storm. And as to sailing to Japan, good luck for not striking a typhoon. Your Husky may get motion-sick, my Malemute did--in cars. Both are breeds that can turn on the excitement very fast, lovely beasts, actually. There is no reason to assume that neither of your pets will get seasick, some do, some don't. But the possibility is something you may want to integrate into your thinking [the vet can sell you drugs, but you may not like how the pets respond].

Re: Selling it all for a bluewater boat - Advice requested :)

What’s everyone’s opinion on a Pearson 36-2 for a coastal cruiser or possibly longer open ocean trips? I'm looking for island hopping in the Caribbean, Bahamas trips and maybe expanding my horizons once I gain more experience. I was looking at an 85 Pearson 36-2. Is this boat a good choice for this use? I have read many reviews on this model. Thanks...

Re: Selling it all for a bluewater boat - Advice requested :)

I think the 365 is a heavier cruising boat and the 36-2 is a beamy, fin keeler?

If the boat surveys well I'm sure it would island hop just fine, old boat issues notwithstanding.
