i have a ranger 24 bay and am wanting to venture offshore some more. I’m really wondering two things how far do you go out in a Similar Boat and what precautions and gear you should have not only to be save but to make the trips easier

    Just pick your days for Weather similar flats boats have gone to the Bahamas. Couple of guys crossed the Atlantic in a flats boat! I have seen jon boats and gheenoe's 10 miles out. It is just what you are comfortable with. Weather is the most important thing to look at. EPIRB,PLB a second VHF handheld. The list is long for safety gear and let somebody on shore know where  you will be fishing and when you will be back..

    Become a weather expert and know the current conditions as well as the forecast including sea conditions. Also know the tide changes. have a cell phone and a vhf radio that works. An EPIRB too.  The ocean can be as calm as a lake or too dangerous for a cruise ship. Know before you go.
