Hunter, Catalina, and Beneteau''''s 28-30'''' or what?
I am planning to cruise the florida bahamas area for a couple years it will be the first sailboat that I own and I am not sure of the seaworthiness of Hunter, Catalina, or Beneteau for that type of sailing. I need to buy something that is appprox. 35k total boat budget. I was hopping to get the boat for about 30k and plan about 5k in repairs and fixer up''s. I have heard that these boats may not be of high quality as some boats for sailing that area. Can you tell me what your opinion is on 28-30'' boats of those manufacturers or possibly other manufacturers that make a 28-30'' boat that might be more for the type of sailing I want to do. Only two people on board and plan to island hop mostly... Thank you.
