I've owned a 32 for over 12 years have solo sailed it from Newport to Grenada and back. Speed, Have sailed it from Newport to St Thomas in 9, one time I could have done it in less but had to heave to for 30 hours...I lived on Courage for two years while cruising the caribbean had plenty of room for everything including all my dive gear. J/32's suffers pretty much what all j boats do that crazing but doesn't seem to be a problem. the only issue they all have is the anchor locker (leaky) but that is easily cured. If you get one contact me I can help you with that.
