As others have said, I wouldn't start planning for an open water voyage at this stage. Look to your Bahamas idea first and see where that takes you.

Good luck. It will be fun to watch your progress.
Thanks, I appreciate that!

I am just in the learning and brain storming phase for now, but that is how I like to work, plan it and build it in my head several times, several different ways first, then I will know what to look for when I am ready to buy one based on the different combination and plans in my head and what will meet my long term needs.

I built the Suburban for about 18 years before I finally bought one, and it has worked out exactly how I envisioned it. Of course I don't plan to wait that long for a trawler, I have more money and less time than I did when I was a teenager
