Thanks paulk and calebd.

I like the J24. I just get the feeling that these are primarily used for racing and sailed pretty hard. The cabin on the j24 also appears primarily to store the sails. I'm primarily looking for cruising and not race performance. Possibly even a boat to overnight with on the weekend.

Makes sense about the reputation primarily being skipper error or inexperience. I'm just curious to what makes a boat "blue water worthy" and why the Hunter 27 may not be one of them. Just looking for a starter cursing sailboat. I'm a bit surprised that taking a Hunter out to St. George's may be a challenge. As for taking it to the Caribbean is just a curiosity and beyond my skill/comfort at the moment.

Thanks for the help.
