Can a Bristol 32 Circumnavigate?

I was in my local bookstore yesterday reading a book about small crusing boats (forget the exact name). They talked in the book about a guy who circumnavigated in a Catalina 27. Sure, he made a lot of modifications (which are detailed in the book), but his reason for chosing the boat was simple: he couldn''t afford anything else. His choice was make this boat work, or never make the trip.

Just something that caught my eye because I don''t think a Catalina 27 would top anyone''s list of blue water cruisers.
