Some will be braver (more foolhardy) than others, some even row across oceans.
But best to choose a model that's already been there, successfully survived making rough passages under different crews.
To me, even if I never do true blue water
or RTW, I want to start with a boat
that I know could be upfitted to do so if I ever decide to go for it,
without having to start over again with another boat
new to me.
And since my preference is a small boat
, by today's standards, and older models, that additional filter doesn't have to add much cost to the initial purchase price
Getting it fully ready may easily cost 10x that initial amount over a few years.
