Beneteau 343 Capable of Offshore?
 
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!

Bryan
