Yes, she is. We're a little nervous about the trip in general, but not about the boat. I've been blown into Monterey Bay on a gale twice. I've added alot of heavy weather gear: Dutchman boom brake, full batten main with two reef points, storm dodger, etc. and carry a warp, storm anchor (parachute), spare fuel, lots of ground tackle and more. I think it's more about being prepared and sailing in a prudent manner than the particular boat. She's proven to be strong, if a little tender, on the ocean. And, for a smaller boat, she has the room we need. She's not as seakindly as some, and may require more work to sail, but I have no doubts as to her seaworthiness. As Capt. Fatty says, "Mind the rudder, or meet the rock."
