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:

So what is considered minimum tankage for the OP's expected range?

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.
