WattsIsland is on a distinguished road
I think that is a great idea. Iím a new-guy to this site but I have been knocking around sailboats for about 40+ years. If someone had the time and effort, a good list could be compiled consisting of --- verified --- successful passages in any given type of boat. This would help diminish the opinion and concentrate on the facts. It would be great reading and cut down on the huge amount of research we all do when a new boat pops into the arena that most do not know. The reader could make their own decision. I have been told the Allied Seawind 30 has made 9 verified circumnavigations and only a handful of old salts know the boat (it did make the list though.

Hay the Sunfish passage would be better than the sailboard passages, which beats Ishmael floating on a coffin.
