Re: Southern Cross 28 seaworthiness vs Morgan 33

Every boat has it limitations. It seems a bit unfair to assume that a Morgan 33 could not go out in 30-40 know winds and come out ok. I believe if you prepare for those occasions, reefing or stom jib would suffice and keep you relatively safe and secure. Smaller sailboats have done so and wet or dry you all know you'll be in for a ride. I am thinking of buying a M33 and doing long distance cruising. I believe if I prepare the boat and do a complete shakedown and stock it for the long haul, I will have more interesting things to talk about afterwards. Live, love, and learn.
