Other than having a good trip, just have FUN!!! That's what this is all about, right?

I wish you a safe, but adventurous voyage; I have put “Music on the Wind” in my favorites. Have a safe and grand trip.

My Viking 33 and your Ontario 32 were made at the same factory with the same approach to FG layup and tabbing, so I think you'll be fine. The Ontario 32 has crossed a lot of ocean, and meets my definition of "well-found" pretty closely, but is still capable of decent speed.

How one ended up in Texas is a mystery, but it's a good design for that part of the world. Just install 1/4" aluminum backing plates on all the through-deck gear...those dopey fender washers just get dished!

Right around the dial...promises slop, but nothing too brutal. He can use a lot of that wind with a No. 2 and the occasional single reef in the main. Nice. I forgot where he's going, but I suppose he could go a bit west than south and then tack back to close-hauled in from the SW.
