Re: Boat for Pacific Passage - yes or no?

Latitude 38 magazine is a good source for boats on the west coast, and there seem to be quite a few in Mex.

Another great resource for Pacific crossings is the Pacific Puddle Jump organization.

Not personally familiar with any of the boats on your lists so can't recommend any, but I would tend to favor the longer waterline, heavier disp. ones.
