I also have a 31' Bombay Clipper. The boat is very roomy for a boat this size and in my opinion sails well. I also have the 5' draft so can not comment on the shoal keel. I have found the boat to be very sturdy and have had her out in some good winds and waves inside and outside of the San Francisco bay the boat handled it well, I never felt it flex at all just like Farcry said "built like a tank". I have to agree with Farcry's post so I won't repeat what he said. I am a bit nuts so I won't lecture you on taking a boat you just bought on such a long trip. The boat will make it, seems they usually do, it's the crew who bails first. I am not at my boat so can't post any pics. I live aboard and love my boat very much with all the room and comfort these boats have for their size. Please keep us posted on the trip and how you think the boat did.
