In addition to the things Jeff mentioned...I'd make darn sure the keel & attachment is solid as well as there were some reefs along the entrance to their Red Hook base...(don't ask how I know!...I wasn't always this perfect!)
I hope that was with a charter boat, and not Camraderie...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
