You know. Buy the boat and fix her up real good.

Do you think it would make it the whole 30,000 miles?
Smaller boats have circumnavigated. See Atom Voyages - Good Old Boats List

But it depends a great deal on the skipper, Webb Chiles or Shane Acton would most likely make it round, don't know about you.

If you are interested in small boat circumnavigations Shrimpy by Shane Acton is required reading. It was a frequent source of inspiration for me.

I owned a swing keel Catalina 22 [Jaguar 22] and sailed it around the West coast of Scotland and down the Adriatic. I liked it and it was a great little coastal cruiser. Offshore in bad conditions, I am not so sure, that is a big cockpit if it gets filled.
