Thanks for your help. I don't recall
make of cat but it's 36-38 ft and made with the outboard power-wasn't changed from inboard. I've only motorsailed the boat from Tarpon Springs to Ft Myers-about 100 miles-so I don't really know how she sails
. But I assume OK. I don't know range and that's part of the problem. Looks like you get 7 mpg which is real good. This boat carries 70 gal total and if I assume say 5 mpg that's also around 350 mile range which would work.
April, May June are best for 'settled weather' but with el Nino, la Nina, etc going on I don't know what to expect for headwind strength to San Juan
. Guess just have to start out and plan on anything from a one week to possibly 4+ week trip---
Thanks again for your help, Ed
