I am buying a Lippincott 30...for sailing to the bahamas..

Is this possible with a 30ft Lippincott, from Miami to Bahamas...?

I have thought about doing this in an Irwin 34 but everyone tell me this is too dangerous...any thought...?

I disagree entirely with the advice you've been given. Gazillions of Irwins of all sizes have been to the Bahamas safely and the Lippincott is a racer/cruizer that is smaller and will be less comfortable and offer less storage for living aboard. And how about the tankage?? Tankage
Fuel: 12Water: 30Holding: 10

Displacement 8400lbs
Fuel: 30 gl.Water: 80 gl.Holding: 15 gl.
and 11,600lbs.

Add to that the extra length & beam and you have the ability to cruise in comfort vs. race around the buoys and be comfortable for a weekend.
