The ONLY problem we have with the Cabo is the lack of storage
and to a lesser extent the relatively small diesel fuel
capacity. In squalls with 50+ knots it was unpleasant but never felt unsafe. In 30 knots we were overcanvassed (stupid club race) but had full main, staysail, and 130 up.
If we don't find an alternative boat we shall simply keep the one we have. One needs to remember that the Cabo has something of a "cult" following. After having had one, I sometimes wonder if I might not have been just as well off with say a Pacific Seacraft Crealock
37 and not spent quite as much money
By the by, my first boat was a Morgan 32. I spent many hours single
handing that rascal and it still holds a fond spot in my memory. There just aren't too many shoal draft
boats in the size range we would like.
p.s. thanks for the welcome. I am a participant on the straight razor place forum and the format and so far the people seem very similar, i.e., first class.
