cape dory 30

Hi ;My wife and I are searching for a boat to cruise the east and gulf coast with trips to the Bahamas. We have considered several boats wanting one that is big enough but not too much. We considered the Catalina 30 which is very roomy but seems a little less seaworthy than what we need. We have looked at 2 Cape Dory''s. A 270 and a 30. We really like the cape dorys. The CD270 was just too small and not that much better than a Catalina 30 for seaworthiness. Any advice on the cape dory 30 for a cruising couple??? We plan to cruise for a couple years. It does seem a little small for a 30 footer but is it seaworthy???
