Many Ranger 33s have made it to Hawaii. I don't know how the 32 is different but it looks like the same hull
The problem with any fin keel
spade (or skeg) rudders is that there is a lot of downwind sailing from mainland to Hawaii. The rudder
works hard from start to finish so it is a consideration. It must be in good condition and tight in its installation
. It is always good to have an emergency
backup idea for steering
. I had a friend who broke his tiller on the trip around South Pt. on his Ranger 33. Each year there are many cruisers from the mainland who have rudder
troubles within 200 to 400 miles of the Big Island.
I do like Rangers and I think that length of boat is ideal.
