Hello!!!!We are Barb & Tony ,we came from California to buy a boat in Portsmouth , Va. It's a 53'Hatteras MY . We came from Cal. to buy THIS boat because it was the only 53 we could find with Niaad Stabilizers. We have been here for 2 years getting the boat ready for the trip to San Diego , which we plan on leaving here Oct.2012. Now comes the good part. I would REALLY appreciate any info on a trip from Key West to Panama via Yucatan , Belize, Roatan etc. etc. , Panama. We are also considering going around the Leeward Is. and end up in Cartagena , Venezuela for the hurricane season. Would appreciate any info that we can get. Thanking you all in advance
