At the end of the day tho, any of these boats work IF the owner buyer likes the look feel etc of the boat.

The real question becomes, how much sheet are folks going to take along? if a lot, then a heavier disp larger payload boat for a given length is going to be needed, OR, as I kinda sorta joked, but was also serious about brian needing a 40M boat vs a 40ft boat, one needs to go longer, so that one can stay in an area that might be on the true lighter disp end of things, so the boat feels lively etc. Both boats at the end of the day may disp say 40K lbs, but a longer one will be faster more lively etc than the shorter one of the same wt!

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
