In your avatar you're wearing a communications
headset? Maybe in a plane? If so you understand the difference between total fight hours and taking your first lesson 5 years ago.
If sailing 50 weekends a year for 7 years you don't need to ask. If several times a season then just add time/experience before buying
What's the longest trip so far? Ever go ocean in the Columbia
? Tested the limits? Really?
In two years (2010-2012) I logged 15k nm ocean miles in a 30+ year old 25ft crap trailer boat.
Anything that will keep you dry and not fall over will do.
Common plan is to acquire equipment
when experience is lacking.
Go trans ocean in a 6.5 mini sled and have an experience worth remembering.
30 footers are so common. Bleh.
