Re: Advice on a Caribbean Cruiser

A classic question!
The smaller, more rugged, full keeled boat will be better at sea.
But the bigger, more modern fin keeler will be better in port.

In the caribbean, you don't need to do long passages if you don't want to. Its easy enough to hop from island to island. So go with a well built modern cruiser with lots of space for your boys and lots of storage.
