Hey there guys and gals,
I recently bought a 2008 343 with the intentions of mainly sailing up and down the east coast
and into the Bahamas
etc etc...I've upgraded it significantly and love the boat
very much...as a younger guy I feel like at some point I would like to do some open ocean "blue water" passages, albeit in the distant future...has anyone done any long distance offshore
sailing in a 343?
Like I said I have done extensive upgrades so I would hate to sell it but I also have been doing quite a bit of reading on full keel
boats (after I purchased this one), particularly the Island Packet
35...for what I paid for my 343 the Island Packet
would be 20 years older but obviously a very sturdy boat
...any and all advice
is greatly appreciated!
