Chuck Merrell says something very similar:
Suesanne Altenburger does not totally agree:
"The navigator conversion was designed for a fellow that wanted to
singlehandedly circimnavigate the australian continent, not the
earth....this is where the lecture begain. She carried on about
legal issues designing a boat and made sure i wasn't up to anything
too stupid.......very libertarian of her. She said it is a great
boat for shorter jaunts......specifically nova scotia and the
caribbean, but not the atlantic. She said what limits the micro the
most for larger crossings is the hull speed is so low you expose
yourself more. If i was interested in a bigger trip i should
consider a LM navigator and said the conversion would be easy enough
to do and they could do the drawings but no one had asked."
Actually I had askd but was told they were too busy.
