Re: Best small boat for cruising the Bahamas?

Not to hijack, but how do people feel about a boat like the S2 7.9 for this type of application? Its a MORC boat, certainly (as set up stock) more of a racer than a cruiser. Leaving aside the lack of a full galley (which can/would be remedied prior to an extended cruise), how would this boat handle the Gulf Stream crossing and island hopping? Its a weighted daggerboard configuration that draws 5' board down, 1.5' board up.
