Don't forget that Killarney Sailor circumnavigated on a centerboard Bristol, I believe without issue on that score.

Yes, I know, and we talked about that issue and he had no reservations about CB on such a trip. But he has a much bigger boat where perhaps the risk is lower. I also heard that someone circumnavigated in a Tartan 34, which of course has a large CB. Still, it would not be my first choice.

Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

Aloha 32 is a good boat but a bit light displacement wise and the flush hatch on foredeck is a no-no for me. Ontario 32 would be a better choice but these are very rare boats.

Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

Buying a foreign flag (besides Canadian) boat seems like a lot of extra hassle and expense, but I would not mind buying a Contessa 32 even as it is not a good boat for cruising as it is cramped and small on space/tankage.

Thanks, John. Since you own one of these Ontario 32 boats, how do you like it?

Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

Kriss

I think the O32 is a pretty decent boat, solid and well built, but maybe a bit tight accomodation-wise, no quarter berth (with the flip side of plenty of cockpit storage) There may have been versions that added the quarter berth but not sure.

One factor, don't know if it's really a big deal, but on the east coast with all the lobster pots, the O32 has an offset prop shaft (not in line with the keel/rudder), might be more exposed?
