Minimum extended cruising requirements.
Hey 'all. We are new to off shore cruising having done some great lake sailing. We are looking to do some extended cruising from New England te Keys and in the Caribbean. Our eventual goal is to transition to liveaboard in a few years. My question is this: What is the minumum size boat I should entertain for extended cruising in the caribbean with a max crew of five. I would rather have a boat more cabable in weather than anything, and comfort should come next. I'd love to hear anybody's thoughts on the matter. Thanks and Happy Cruising!!!
