Interesting question, but kinda like asking, "Which would you rather have for dessert- mashed potatoes or sauteed green beans?"

Both are tasty, but neither would be my first choice. I like them both, but always with provisos.

Given your coastal cruising parameters, my money is on the Gemini. IMO, if you are doing short passages with a lot of time on the hook, there is no substitute for square footage of living space. But to get the most out of that space, one has to come to grips with the load limitations, to a greater extent than a similar LOA monohull. More room to move around, less payload.
