My one comment would be that a boat of that size and price range is going to be marginal for cruising the Caribbean. Even after you spend a bunch of money to upgrade it, its still going to be too small for other than short hops in a good weather window. Plan on a gaining some experience cruising the Bay and then moving up to something more suitable for the longer range voyaging.
