We've been sailing our '98 B-352 out of Rock Hall on the Chesapeake since the summer of "08. Mostly weekending & some 3 & 5 day trips each season. Very comfortable, performs well for a 35' cruiser & a pleasure to back up into a tight slip. We have the furling main which is a good choice for cruising. But note: a B-351 "Jeroboam" (with standard main) just placed first on elapsed & corrected time in class for the OSTAR race. So, if you have the standard main it can kick up its heels too.
Good luck with your choice!
