We have been cruising in the Caribbean
for the last 5 years and planing to go back to the east coast
of the US in the not too distant future.
We currently have a couple of boats and I have been trying to figure out which would be the most enjoyable to keep while there.
The 28ft cat has a 3ft draft
13ft beam 30ft mast
that can be dropped by us and has satisfied our needs for 4 years. Space is a bit tight.
The 50ft mono has a 7.6ft draft
13ft beam 62ft mast
and has given us alot more space. Very nice offshore
If we where to continue sailing around the world then the mono would be our choice but since we will be in the US for a min of 3-4yrs maybe more I am wondering if it will not be as enjoyable if we want to explore the ICW
and other inland places. Also was thinking in 3-4yrs if we decided to continue sailing we can always look again for another boat
Since I have not sailed the east coast
much I am not sure what type of boat
would be the most enjoyable.. my wife and son vote the 50ft because they both enjoy the space so much. But if we have to sail off shore all the time then I am sure they will have other votes.
.. Can we anchor
in most places?
Any feed back is welcome and sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.
