. I myself have no issues with rough weather

and remember days walking on bulkheads or tied to my bunk to not fall out (mostly in the North Atlantic). Most islands in the Caribbean
are not far apart so from one island to the next is mostly a day trip. Since this thread was started in January, does anyone have any new views on this? Or, has anyone reading taken their M/Y from the states down to the Caribbean Islands?
Is this the boat?
Looks like to me it could handle the inter-island passages. Yes, it can get rough between the islands, some spots worse than others, but in our two years of cruising from the Virgin Islands
, we only experienced a few times where it got very uncomfortable. Our 38' sailboat handled it all without any issues.
