36 to 38 foot boat for The Keys?

In that size/age/draft range, I''ve been impressed with the Hunter 37 cutter (early 1980''s version) Layout, space and construction details seem decent, without going overboard as if you were trying to sail the Northwest Passage. Tartan''s overall construction reputation is better, but the layout in the T37 seems a bit funky and tight for the relaxed cruising style of the islands. The Sabre 38 of the same vintage has a layout and solid construction that might be worth looking into as well, though I don''t remember what they draw. Sounds like you''re into a fun hunt.
