Ray, I would say that comparing experience in bad weather between owners of OVNIS and owners of any other type of boats the chances are that the owners of OVNIS have more experience just because they have bought a voyage boat to voyage and when you voyage a lot, sooner or later, you will get bad weather. Once I drank some bears with a OVNI owner at the Paris boat show. It turns out that the guy had circumnavigated 3 times with the same boat....Do you see what I mean? I am sure he had got its share of bad weather.
Here you have the OVNI forum and even if in French I guess it will be of some use to you:
