I find all of your responses very interesting but not very helpful. Keep in mind that the Westsail 32''s displacement is 20,000lbs with a keel displacement of 7,000, draft of 5ft. Very comparable to the Skookum 34. It''s also known to be one of the greatest around-the-world cruising boats ever made. Seems like you''re jumping to conclusions pretty quickly for not having many facts.
