Blueranger was spot-on and if you check out his profile photo, you'd see how ramminjammin's boat does over 20 knots . . .

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

No SD, just goofing around on my lunch break . . . plus, turkey on wheat gets boring after awhile.

I'm also looking at the Tartan 30, Pearson 30, S2 9.2 and the C&C 30. Can anyone offer comparisons of these for Caribbean cruising (Islands, Mex etc...) which would be best suited? Are there any differences between the production years of the Tartan 30 that I should look out for? Any years better than others?

tharper, these are all "smaller" coastal cruising boats and none would be my choice for what you propose. That said I would rate the S2 the least desirable and the Tartan the most desirable. Note there are 3 versions of the C&C 30. The Mark 1 was a solid stiff boat and I would rate that one be right up there with the Tartan. Any of these are getting well up in years and would need extensive fitting out before any extensive cruising.

lol

well i just found this old post and was amused by the responses
I have ofteh thought about that 21 knot and 19 knot
I am wondering if my gps was displaying kilometers per hour, and that would make 14 knots more believable
wish i had saved that data to verify
lol

i am sticking to my original numbers

well I am now sticking to my original numbers
I am attaching a screen shot of the Garmin numbers from my latest voyage : MAX SPEED 14.7 kt !!!!!!!!!!
on Friday July 17 , from Middle LaHave to Halifax Nova Scotia
Compared to the Grand Manan trip the tide action here is much lower, and the swells were about 1/3 the height and much less period. The swells were 10 feet on friday , we had a small spinnaker up on a broad reach , here are the verified numbers :

I think I'd take the gps back. By the way this boat is just about to blow through 21 knots:
