Hi All !

I just bought a HR Monsun 31 sailingboat. I hope its a good boat for oversea cruising. I have only been sailing here in Sweden for 4 years and loves it, but dont now much about other boatbrands.
I belive the best way to make a boat ready for a long voyage is by using the boat and then one day its ready. Rather than having on land prepering. Am i right?
