Bud,
I read in your manual, I think, that at the time Westsail increased the headroom in its 32, it also changed the hull making technique. Seems they changed from a through bolt and sealed hull/deck joint and went to a totally ecapsulated one piece hull, doing away with the split on the stem, as well, and adding another deck hatch amidships. Did I miss that or am I right? If so, are the pre-625 hull/deck joints stronger, better, the same, or what, compared to the later ones? I would hate to give up that excellent earlier joint for extra, but nonessential, headroom. Have a great day!
Randy
