cape dory 30

Thanks Doug I have looked at the Alberg 30. It seems like all Alberg designs are pretty seaworthy. The problem is that you trade speed for seaworthiness. Anyone have any favorites that are seaworthy and reasonably fast??? I was looking at a Pacific Seacraft 25 which is small but seaworthy. It has also been described as a sea slug!!!! We want to sail most of the time and the gulf coast can be pretty calm in the summer. My brother had a PS25 when he lived in Guam. He liked it a lot but admitted that there was usually a pretty good breeze all of the time. If we are going to be power boaters might as well buy a trawler!!! It has turned into a more difficult search for "the boat" than we imagined. I am more willing to trade safety for speed. My wife wants more safety.
