I am hoping someone knows about the offshore
- and foul weather
capabilities - of the Roberts 53 BD with a centerboard keel
. I'm thinking of buying
one, but I want to take it across both big oceans, and maybe even around the world!
How is it in the event of a capsize
, how would it hold up in continuous pounding seas, say, the Horn, things of that sort. And if it has some shortcomings, can they be overcome with relatively moderate - i.e., not radical - modifications?
