Texas to Central Am/Caribbean

Can''t hurt to ask the expert''s!!!

I have been boat shopping for a few months. Not much to pick from in Texas, especially when your eyes are much bigger than your bank account!

Am looking for a capable boat to cruise from Texas, down the coast of Mexico, to Central America. Then, possibly, on to the Carib. I would be primarily living aboard, with excursions into various countries. I scuba and snorkle. There would be myself and my buddy (co-captain!) on board. I am looking at an Elite 29 in GREAT shape. I like the layout of the cabin and it is the cleanest boat I have seen so far. Assuming upgrading the electronics and scrapping the ruined diesel for an outboard, I figure total cost for boat/cruising gear at $9-10K. What do you guys think? Any better ideas???
