The cost of re-fitting an Alberg-design in that price range to be seaworthy of a crossing to the Bahamas is far less than that of a Hunter in that price range... since the basic boat is much more seaworthy IMHO. However, upping the price to say $15,000 might well yield a boat that is almost ready to go, rather than needing any refitting.

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.
