If this is two sailors wanting to get across and would like a second set of hands, I would sail dual in one boat
and go back and get the second boat
and do it again.
Or cheaper - find another crew.
If I was an a"independent single
hander" I would not consider selling my boat to cross a puddle.
For many reasons I would not plan to sail in company. I would not be averse to keeping position updates and status updates between the boats if I had the comm gear
. I would not commit to diverting to render assistance unless I was in reasonable range and the boat was seriously foundering.
