Not masts, stabilizers.
No blue water boat that I know of would head off without these, active fins or a gyro stabilizer.
Hang in there, I don't want you to feel like a bumpkin....
Maybe less than 1 percent of all boaters go blue water....maybe even less than 1 percent of the 1 percent serious cruisers actually go deep blue.
Most would recommend you spend some time on bigger boats getting extended coastal yet offshore experience before jumping into a larger boat. Having some idea what is what and what is important to you may pay big dividends.
