I was thinking the same thing. The chase boat has sails. And heat, room to change clothes under roof, and a better menu. But I'd still like the experience of the little boat using old equipment. So if "both" wasn't an option, I'd pick the Australis.

I HAVE a 21 foot boat with a single gas burner, one pot, and tiny cabin filled with sails and gear. If I wanted the experience I'd take it out today (sub zero temps this week gave us ice, now it's 45, windy, and raining hard - seems like that replicates the southern ocean pretty well actually)
