Re: Cal 27 T/2
The Cal is a good rugged little boat, I'm sure you'd be totally fine for the Keys, and with a good weather window hopping to the Bahamas seems do-able.. though I'd expect that if you get a rough crossing of the stream that would be less uncomfortable on something more substantial. (Caveat: Keep in mind I'm a West Coaster so have no direct experience with that)
As long as the boat is well found and the rigging in good shape, I think this is one of those cases where it's more about the sailor than the boat..
