I have been reading the forums
as a guest for atleast 18 months now.
So far the information here has been invaluble to me in making plans for our impending circumnavigation
. I must admit sometimes information overload occured as many inderviduals have strong opinions on things like mono vs multi etc etc,, in the end I take in all the advice and adapt it to suite our personal requirements.
so here is the basics that we have settled on.
Firstly its just me and my wife on the trip,, its the honeymoon we never had
We are wanting to buy a multihull
40-45 ft, I have been watching the prices of catamarans for a long time, BTW we are in New Zealand
but have the option to buy and start our trip in Australia
After looking at prices it seems that there is a lot of value in used trimarans and is likely the way we will go,, they seem to be almost half the price
of a cat of similar size.
Comments on what age, setup, type sould be looked at or avoided would be appriciated.
has strict requirements for localy registerd yachts and skippers, such as Cat 1 and indevidual skills for departure. Does Austrailia have similar requirements? what are the international standards if any,, or what skills and safety
are required from most ports
that we would visit around the world.
does anybody have any thoughts on tossing out the good old diesel
in favor of electric
We are currently cashing up our land based assets, hopefully we will be ready in the next 18 months max. Our approxamate budget
for the Tri is NZ$ 200k,, anyone want to trade
I will direct more questions at the apropriate forums
Thanks for all the good info so far.
It is better to regret things you have done than regreting thing that you havent done.
