That is a beautiful boat! I agree with you that many modern boat designs are suitable for extended offshore cruising. I think the whole "offshore means full keel, heavy, and slow" thing is an image conjured of days gone by. When someone mentions pirates, I picture Captain Jack Sparrow, or images from the old pirate movies I watched in black and white, not high speed boats with RPG's and automatic weapons. Still, they are both pirates. I'm just glad that no matter what type of boat one finds appealing and no matter where in the whole wide world one wishes to sail, there is a boat to fit the fancy!
