Re: How do you use your boat

Mine is a 30+ year old production boat, and I use it for daysails and the occasional coastal overnighter, and spend most weekends aboard at the marina. I'm saving my pennies and hope to take a large chunk of time off fairly soon for a trip to the Bahamas and possibly beyond.....and I think this boat is suitable for that with careful planning and weather window management. This boat is clearly not suitable for an open ocean crossing, though, in my opinion. When the time comes for that I'll look for an Allied Seawind, Westsail, CSY, or similar older slab o' glass.
