thank you for the generous invitation. I am very actively looking for a bluewater seaworthy
boat that is also liveaboard
I intend to sail her down to the Caribbean
where I will cruise
and possibly the Bahamas
for a while before I muster the courage and confidence to sail to Micronesia in the South Pacific
I have looked at several designs ranging from a Com-Pac 27 to a Hunter
35. However, I do not believe Com-Pac and Hunter are seaworthy
I also looked at older boats such as Cal
, Endeavor, Irwin
, and others.
Most of the older boats are reputed to be seaworthy but probably because of age, the condition of the cabin
was less than something you would want to show to your wife -- not that I have a wife but I think you know what I mean.
Now, a broker has contacted me with the opportunity to look at a Freedom 28 Cat Ketch and I am trying to find reviews
, articles and information about the boat regarding seaworthiness, construction quality, etc.
Does anyone have any firsthand experience with a full keel
Cat Ketch 28?
What is your opinion?
