Re: Best small boat for cruising the Bahamas?
We chartered a 37' Tayana Cutter in Abaco taking ASA lessons in 2009 and had a great time, that size was a pleasure to sail down there given the trade winds we usually had. Our dream is to cruise full time one day, if this happens it will probably require us to make one more move and buy a multi-hull. Multi's just seem the way to go down there, being cheap and long distance sailing might place one in a bad position, almost everytime I cheap out I end up regretting it and actually spend more correcting my initial move, your experience may differ. Last year when we were in Eleuthera we saw a large (40+) sailboat with a broken mast being towed in, I often wonder what the story was behind that.
BTW my avitar is me sailing that Tayana in the Sea Of Abaco...
