Buying my first boat
 
Hello! My boyfriend are are ready to buy a boat for cruising in the caribbean and are looking at a Rafiki 37 vs a 38 Heritage West Indies Ketch. Any thoughts on these boats? We are pretty new to Sailing so your experience is welcome!

Not familiar with either, but those who are will want to know how you intend to use the boat - live aboard, coastal cruiser, blue water, - as well as where you intend to sail. Good luck with your search. You'll find lots of help here.

We plan to do some costal and blue water cruising around Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama. We will likely live aboard several months out of the year.

Sorry I can't help with the boat question, but since you mention where you plan to cruise I have to tell you: you might want to check Colombia also, awesome.....


Good luck with your boat purchase !!!
