st francis 44 1994 sailing the bahamas

howdy, my st francis cat is back sailing the bahamas this year. i will be discussing the boat and the trip on my blog . it is low bridge deck but the slamming is the same as the other bigger cats i have chartered and crewed on such as the fp, catana, and lagoons . we just sailed her across the gulf stream with 20 to 25 knot north winds from cape canaveral to great sale in the abacos with minimal slamming with 8 to 12 ft seas and we averaged 8.5 knots the entire way. i would call it a pretty easy trip. the generator was removed and 2 new 30 hp yanamars installed. with the 500 watts of solar i have tons of excess capacity for a huge freezer and giant frig. if questions just post and will get back later thx chris
