I like off-shore boats that you sit in not on. The security of a high coaming wrapping around me keeps me warm and fuzzy. A number of boats - Moodys, Freedom, J - don't give that protection. Open cockpits are for race boats only. I sailed a C&C 37+ for ten years and always feared I would drift off to sleep off-shore at night and slide right out of the boat.
