Look here for photos Bombay Clipper 31 or go to Orphan Brands and scroll til you find Bombay Clipper. Don't be afraid to use the search function too.

Jeff and a plethora of others on Sailnet are far more qualified to answer your questions regarding the choice of a BC for bluewater usage. My understanding is that the BC31 (which I have) has almost all of the attributes one does not want for offshore travel. It has a very large cockpit, very minimal tankage and a very wide middle (11+ on a 31 vessel) that is not easily driven into high seas. Mine seems very solid and I have little doubt it would tolerate a lot of abuse before any structural failure occurs. There are other larger Bombay models I know nothing about that may be suited for the Big water. I look at the BC31 as an adequate weekender/coastal cruiser with a very large interior for such a short boat.
