I have a 33 Morgan Out Island, which I consider a go anywhere, do anything kind of boat. It handles well in offshore waters, it handles well inshore, it only draws 4-feet of water, it's big enough for a couple of adults to live upon comfortably and has all the amenities of home.
I've only owned the boat for just over three years, however, I make 60 to 70 trips a year, mostly just one to four day voyages in and around Chesapeake Bay. This fall, however, I ventured out on a 7-month voyage down the ICW and offshore to the Florida Keys, a 1,500-mile trip that has not only been exciting, but at times somewhat scary. Hopefully, the trip home, which will begin on or about March 1, 2013, will be a bit easier - no hurricanes, storms, and with luck, warmer weather for the first 1,000-miles or so.
