Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

Denise,

We chartered a 445 with Island Yachts in St Thomas for a week. Wow, roomy boat. Not fast, but 2 couples can live large on that boat with great fore and aft staterooms. If you want to try one out, a charter in the VI's is a pretty painless way to do it. They have a selection (no affiliation).

Boat 2 for us (now on 5) was a CD28. We won a race once in it when the race committee set the course so that it was reaching both ways and the wind was blowing a stink Again, not fast, great looking (in my opinion), but looks came at the cost of a traditional narrow beam which translated to tight living below.

I like the looks of the Cabo Rico. Haven't sailed one.

Life is too short to own a boat that you don't look longingly back at when you dingy back from the mooring.

Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

I have been on a CD 40. Beautiful boat. Huge cockpit. Tons of storage. Not very roomy accommodations by todays standards, but I don't see that as a bad thing. Great engine and stuffing box access.
