New Boat

My wife and I are in the process of buying a new (for us - ie used) boat to do some(mostly) coastal cruising between Chesapeake and Fla/Bahamas. We recently sold our Pearson 323, which we were very happy with, and are looking for a boat in the 38 - 40' range. We have narrowed the search down to Island Packet and Caliber - and wondered what everyone's opinion of the two boats might be - in particular, I have been pondering the rudder configurations of both boats - and wonder if Caliber's use of a skeg hung rudder is an advantage or not. Also have been pondering the pros/cons of roller mains....... Thanks in advance for your thoughts....
Doug
