The Ontario 32 is a good, solid boat fully capable of making this sort of journey. My former dentist, Judy Millard, has sailed one with her husband for years now (http://www.searoom.com/veleda/index.html
) and it's an excellent, if compact, vessel. My own dear, soon to be leased out Viking 33 was built by Ontario Yachts, and they made 'em properly.
