I'm not too sure that I would consider either of these boats too bluewater..not that they are likely to fall apart in heavy seas, but that they would be uncomfortable and miserable at sea. Both have very little freeboard, poor handling and little space below. I vividly remember sailing a Triton back across Buzzards Bay in a bit of a breeze off the beam, very active steering with armloads of weather helm. After those two hours, both arms were sore for a week.
Not to diminish the joy of a dream, but buy yourself a Tartan 30 and go in comparative style and comfort.
