I am interested in building/buying a skerry. I would like to do some coastal cruising. I am located in NJ, go often to the cape (Catuit) and dream of camp cruising some of the Maine Island Trail.
My sailing to date has been on lake champlain and BVI on much bigger boats, as well as canoe camping on lakes in VT, NY, NH and FL.
Can anyone offer practical suggestions for camp cruising in a skerry (crew of 2 myself included), as well as possible sail plans for the Maine Island Tral that would be suitable for a skerry.
Likewise, do you think if I pick the weather right a sail from Catuit to Martha's Vinyard is doable?
