A bit off subject, I am having problems finding proper threads, so Ill have to attempt to dump this question here. Is Islander Freeport 36 ( a common boat in western usa ) hull and rigging capable of deslimg with the Caribbean? Any close to a blue water boat? Cant find answers anywhere on the internet..
Nice looking design!
Lots of info on the 'net, like this link:

If you are getting serious... write to designer Bob Perry. He has had (for decades, IIRC) an awesome scheme of providing unlimited advice about any of his designs for a one-time charge. Considering his knowledge, it's always seemed like a great deal.
