Well, thanks for the kind words but I'm just another guy who thinks about boats 84.72% of the time.
There used to be a guy who sailed his Freeport 36 from San Fran to Seattle and back each summer If you can do that in the boat you can pretty mcuh do anything. The only caveat I would add is that companionway is really big and a true blue water boat would probably have a bridge deck. But I'd say the boat would be a magnificent fit for the Caribbean.
You have done well you are taking the time answer a post. You get to have fun working at our play time. What's our excuse for spending 85% of our time with boats ? I might have to spend some time thinking about that .
Good day, Lou
