Thanks for all the information. Im not going to jump and buy a boat next week,
i will sail other boats,i will continue to read and research about it, what i am trying to do is making a list of boats that would be good for my cruising plans Let me put these way:I will buy a boat 38 to 42 ft. I will go island hopping, and go offshore and probably long passages.One of my questions is would be wiser
getting some newer boat cruiser 2000 and up like benes and sail for 3,4,5,years around caribbean and than sell and get a boat that is more fit for longer cruiser like older sabre, passport,tartan (l980s) or go strait to the blue water, learning about it fixing it....
