Re: Do you go newer smaller or older and larger for good caribbean?
I would argue that Gulfstars, Irwins, Hunters, and Morgans are *NOT* stronger than modern production boats.
I'm sure JeffH can provide more info, but as far as I know, none of those brands were built particularly well and have been known to suffer from basic workmanship and design defect issues such as wet decks, delamination, rotting wood in places that are inconvenient, substandard tankage material, as well as generally mediocre workmanship.
Now if you had said "older, larger cabo rico, tayana, valiant, etc" that would been a debate. In this case, hands down newer model.
