your not going to get an absolute guarentee,maybe a submarine,a nucular submarine,you can cruise the carib.mostly island hopping and watch your weather windows also get out of that area by huricane season [july-nov.,countless people have made that trip uneventfully,your more apt to lose most of your boat by local thieves or corrupt officials

I would cruise the carribean in it. Like sawing knots said, you're far more likely to lose the boat on a thousand things, grounding, collision, vandalism, anchor dragging, thru-hull leak, busted hose, theft, etc... before you lose it to a storm because it was 1 foot too small.


a 29' Ericson? A solid boat with good report, in the Carribean where you will rarely be more than 1 day, (100miles) from land? As long as you watch the weather.

People have done it in smaller Hunters. opcorn:

Personally, if it were I, minimum 60 gallons of water.

We met an older couple (mid sixties) sailing the bahamas in a 24 foot niagra. If your boat is in good shape you can do it but as always beware the weather. We crossed the grand banks on what seemed to be a beautyfull weather day and just missed getting hit by a water spout that seemed to appear out of nowhere. Good luck, be safe and have fun.
