nsartor is on a distinguished road
You have purchased well grasshopper! We have taken our Cabo Rico XL 38 from our home port here in Beaufort, NC over to the Bahamas, down the Eastern Caribbean to Trinidad, over the top of Venezuela to the ABC's and then down to Columbia and the San Blas for some of the best sailing/cruising in the world. The HURTH transmission failed us and I had to get a new one in Bonaire, but after that she brought us back up through Houduras, Belize and Mexico with some AWESOME sailing. For a big solid boat she sails like stink and with the cutter rig there are always options. We had just the staysail up all the way to Bermuda in 35 knot winds and she rode them like a purebred. Unfortunately SWEET CAROLINA will have to move on to the next cruiser as my wife's health has gone south but the cruising prolonged the good times for an extra 2 years :-)

If you sail south give us a shout in Beaufort, NC
