If you want to get somewhere quick you don't buy a sailboat, I enjoy the motion of my heavy displacement full keel Allied princess ketch, nice lines too, this is an old thread but still, heavy full keel boats in seaway are the way to comfortably my draft is only 4'6" also, just my opinion and have sailed bay fields in heavy weather, they handle it fine.
