Blue Water a Catalina 28 tall?
Larry, there are many different categories of ''safe''. You''re zooming in on one ''tree'' (your boat''s ability to arrive in the next port, unbroken) but don''t overlook the forest. E.g. how will the crew work the boat& handle the sails on deck, while staying aboard, avoiding too much sun, staying hydrated, deal with an injury, etc.?
I would guess your boat is up to all of your stated routing plan with one cavaet: that you be sufficiently knowledgeable about weather systems along the Gulf Coast & Bahamas, and that you insure you have ways to obtain current weather f''casts (and use them). Presuming that and making sensible choices about when to make the longer hops, you should be fine...altho'' it would have been helpful to hear which brand 28 footer it is.
