I just recently retired and am playing with the idea of doing the great loop. I am looking at boats around 27 feet, so I can tow with my truck, I am about 2 hours from the Mississippi
. Looking at several pilot house type sail boats, but those with an inboard diesel
are kind of few and far between. I was thinking that an outboard engine
would not hold up for a complete loop trip? Does anybody have experience? I currently have a 22 foot starwind sloop
, but I have mainly just did long weekends, it would be more like camping, and it has an outboard
for power as well.
