seeking Knowledge

I am seeking out advice on safe bluewater cruisers, but I am uncertain about which forum to enter. I have already messed up My introduction. Sorry about that.

Ahhh...a wise man indeed. I should pay attention, or My Captain (formerly First Mate) will have Me walking the plank. She was intrigued by the Maritime Laws concerning burial at Sea. Hope You have a great day.

Well searching on the net, will give you several links, to what many consider as "Bluewater" sailboats.

Re: seeking Knowledge

WOW!!! I sure appreciate the links/info. I wish I would have known about this site sooner. In My ignorance, I was looking at a beautiful, but a loser of a boat. At least according to dozens of posts on line. I won't mention the brand, as not to offend anyone. I hope that You have a great day.

Re: seeking Knowledge

Welcome.

I would suggest updating your profile with your general location and your boat make & model or “Looking” in the "Boat" category. This info shows up under your UserName in every post in the web view. Many questions are boat and/or location dependent and having these tidbits under your UserName saves answering those questions repeatedly. If you need help setting up your profile then click on this link: https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ml#post3308797

I would happily help more if the link above is not enough.

Re: seeking Knowledge

Welcome to the forum NewtotheBlue (nice moniker) and as Adelie said, please fill in your profile. It does help others. Maybe change the thread name too, it's rather vague don't you think. Perhaps Seeking Knowledge about Safe Blue Water Cruisers.

And give us a bone at least. You want sail, diesel, electrickery? New or used? What's the budget, and where are you planning to go? Carrib, South Pacific, Japan, Alaska, or a North East Passage across the motherland perhaps? Short handed, or do you have a budget for a professional crew?

'Safe' is a curious word to use in respect to a boat. Benetti make especially safe yachts and I'd recommend them.

My personal favourite is the Ovni 400. Oh but sadly, due to my genealogy, (although I'm sure it was completely the fault of my parents and grand parents before tham) I wasn't born to wealth, and as much as I have been waiting for the call to join a super group and so become a rock star, so far that call hasn't arrived and I can only continue to be patient. But an Ovni 400 is as near as possible to the perfect boat for my needs, ambitions and preferences. And not to ignore that having such a wonderful yacht would of itself convey to all around me that I have a really really big ....

And I have complete confidence that all Benettis and Ovnis are 'safe' blue water, cruiser capable.

Also OP please by my friend, I have so few, and I found out the other day that here on CF, having friends is actually very important. And there's even a thing called an ignore list. I was astonished, who would have guessed? Boatie, Adelie, Gordmay, Drek4, anyone reading, please be my friends too, please, please.

And is it Bluewater or Blue Water? I never know. I thought using the colour blue would be a nice touch.

Re: seeking Knowledge

Adelie, thank You. I Love this site, and will update My profile soon. I am reading various books on sailing, and all things nautical that I can find. Royce's, Learning to Sail, First Time Around, and more. However, I realize that would help.

Re: seeking Knowledge

It's morning here, so good morning, New2theblue, welcome to CF. When you introduce yourself in a group of people, then usually someone asks you about yourself, after they say the local equivalent of "nice to meet you". If you fill out your profile with info about you, others will look at it, and tune their answers to your experience level and location, to the best of their abilities. There are two Cates here, Jim (my husband) and me, and both of us have filled out our profiles. Mine just goes up to when I joined CF.

Enjoy your stay.

Ann
