Lots of people cruise the Caribbean in Catalinas and Benes. I would not automatically cross them from your list unless you really want to make long ocean passages. And if I was a sailor experienced in deep sea sailing I would not be afraid to take a well equipped Catalina 30 across Atlantic. Many such passages were made by sailors.
