The boat has what it take to do the job... what I would be concerned about is setting up the boat for long distance if thats what you planned.
Speaking from experance, A boat with the primary purpose of racing
, needs some thinking to set it up for cruising.. The fresh water storage
isnt the best so you have to add more or add a watermaker
, Battery storage
is another problem, as you need a good size house bank to live on the boat full time.
If living on the east coast
, your depth
is a concern, and I wouldnt concider the shole keel
as its an after thought..
