I have an 89D model and have sailed it from New Orleans to Tampa and back on a couple of occassions. After hurricaine season I plan on taking two months off and sailing down to the Keys from New Orleans. I've had it in 3-5 foot seas on the Gulf of Mexico without problems.
This boat was purchased from the original owner. Guess I can also add that I am female and the vacations to Tampa were done with 3 teenagers on board.
