We have a fair bit of sailing experience, mainly on bigger(75 Ft+) flat bottom barges with leeboards, but coastal and inner waters only, nice and stable and great liveaboards.
But they don't bring you further than that so when pension was about to kick in we chartered with Moorings in the Carib, first monohull
, we did not wanted to be seen on an ugly condo-cat.
We found sleeping at anchor
in the ocean swell a major problem and cooking
under sail also. Once my lady had seen our neighbor doing her yoga exercises on the trampoline one morning there was no escape from renting
a cat the following week.
Still love to see a nice/classic monohull
, but….I don't feel like sailing alone!
Keep u posted what the outcome will be,
