    Hey there. I haven't seen a 35 in person but as a single person aboard I think a 35 would be plenty, we are planning on a family of 5 on our 38. Horstman's are pretty stout boats, the 35 is on the smaller end but just as well built as any. If you need any reassurances as to the quality and durability of the boat do some googling on a boat called Tortouga Too and the Cassanova's. They crossed nearly all the oceans on the planet in every condition imaginable in their Horstman 38.

    Obviously of chief concern would be whether or not the boat was built precisely to Ed Horstman's specifications. I would try to gather as much info about the yard that it was built and the person who built it to get an idea of any changes or deficiencies that may exist.

    I am looking to get a boat and plan on living aboard and single handing. I would be taking it across the pacific to Micronesia and the Marshalls in maybe 2 years for an "extended vacation". I can work from home which really means with proper Internet I can stay gone. My question is about the roomy-ness of a 35' Horstman and whether it is bluewater enough to make the trek. There is a 35' for sale in yachtworld that I am going to see in a few weeks but wanted your opinion. the other option is a big slow comfortable boat like a Mariner 40 but I was looking to go atoll hopping and the draft is a bit much.

    Thanks
