Changes to a Hoyt 32 Cat Sloop for longer distance

Postby hotstonp » Fri Nov 23, 2018 1:05 pm

Hi All

I have a Freedom 32 (except it is in the UK so 33) Sloop. I am currently planning a bucket list type trip of sailing around Britain over a period of 3-6 months at the end of my current contract.

What I want to know is this. What changes have you made to your boat to increase its sea worthiness for longer trips? My longest single handed trip in mine so far has only been 16 hours (my insurance doesn't let me go over 18 hours currently).

I know some of you have been on some nice long jaunts so I am interested in your thoughts and advice. Also it might make an interesting topic for others.

Keep well
1986 Freedom 33 Cat Sloop (UK Hoyt), Hull # 001, Aluminium Needlespar rig, shoal keel.
