I like the Tartan 30 suggestion...look at the Pearson 10m as well, both are affordable and good boats for these waters. Agree that you don't need a wing keel and you'll be glad for a deeper draft for pointing and when in the chop. I sailed a Pearson 30 (wing keel) for a number of years and boy did it take time gettin' there! I have a 6.5' keel on my P37 and have no problems.
