I don't see the big technical issue here. You buy a 30 y/o $150k KK42, fill it with fuel and food for 3 weeks. You head west, if there is trouble you call it in. Something big and floaty will pick you up, the boat will continue to drift. But, you might just make it over OK. Prolly a bit better than 50/50.

Or, do what most folks do, and that is what I call "progressive penetration". Term used by NE deep wreck divers. Basically, start a bit slower, don't make the stuffing box visit on the Andria Doria your first ocean dive.

And if itís financed, the lending group will require insurance. They will ask his navigation limits. With the lack of experience and his dream, the monthly insurance premium, if he can get it, will problemly exceed the loan payment.

When I was 25, I had about $50k saved up, good job and wanted to buy a GB42. A LTV of about 40%. Very good credit, of what there was. I could not find a single bank to loan me the $. I had no real estate, so I was viewed as high risk. In the case above, a go fund me might be the ONLY way.

hey, if you are not risk adverse....there are lots of opportunities.

As I said, I would not feel comfy in a powerboat something under 65 feet. I have been near pole to pole in big USCG cutters and have been uncomfy, but not scared....I just feel the bow of whatever powerboat I am on should make it over MOST of the waves you encounter.

BUT.....if you are really willing to throw caution to the wind, hey, go for it. USCG C130s will drop you rations and liferafts and they are easy to get between California and Hawaii. So it isnt a death sentence with a $150K budgeted power boat...as long as your EPIRB works as advertised.

Difference Between FRP and GRP: FRP vs GRP Compared
Another potential pitfall when searching: GRP is the name of a New York based jazz record label. Founded by Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen,with some great artists in the stable.

I crossed that particular stretch of ocean 2 times, and have no recollection of such conditions. May happen, but I suspect the conditions are being, well, overstated.

Advertising, sponsorships other ways to monetize the trip. Footage from hand held as well as drones. Lots of possibilities to cover some part of the nut.

Look at this thread positively.

Somewhere, somebody who is not a troll has been wondering about this sort of blue water endeavor. Possibly, they learned a tiny bit about costs, vessel type, experience, insurability and off shore decision making.

Thank you Swami.

Just another high horse DB. Your mockery is just about par for the course. GTH.

you just proved your inexperience in that statement.

it not usually weather that does crossers in by itself,... especially in power vessels.
