Stink potter, retired, had 100 ton masters, on North Fork of LI, NY. Belong to Tradewids, sailing cats, in the Caribbean and in my old age realize that slow has its benefits. Want to leave "terra firma" and cruise. Of course where there is "firmer" there is less "terror". I will be asking absurd questions so you guys are warned.
Aloha and welcome aboard!
The more absurd the question the more welcome it is!
If you want to move slower then get a full keelmonohull with a small engine. I can make some recommendations if you like.
