I've said it before, We had as much fun in our 30 footer as any boat; easy maintenance
, easy sail handling etc. It was as dry a boat as any of the big ones too. 32 ft is a great boat and perfect for your venture!
Edit: I see the thread has migrated to a smaller boat yet. It can certainly be done, depending on your comfort factor. But I would opt for something big enough to have an inboard diesel
, on the other hand.. 2-3 months can be done in anything that is safe to cross the gulfstream in. You need a boat that can carry plenty of stuff, extra anchor
(s) and rode
, dingy and outboard
. You dont want a a cheap
trailersailor that is severely overloaded. You would be safer and more comfortable in an old boat with a encapsulated keel (or centerboard) rather than a bolt on keel. For the Bahamas think shallw draft
