RE: Nike boats and other toys.
The 25Albin looks quire seaworthy , but for this trip a much quicker boat will be needed.
Weight is not really a large consideration as the bus has the power and gearing , the trailers have brakes frequently on all 6 wheels.
It is an adventure , mostly in trying to locate an example of the mostly west coast built boats here on the east coast.
If push comes to shove we will simply drive out West , and do a boat purchasing run.
