I have followed this thread, albeit not too closely . I think most people are saying that a safe,sturdy, fast and proven hull is the way to go.

I do know that you can get into some seas where you wish you were in a bigger boat, no matter what you are in. I have also met people who have cruised for years and never bumped into anything stronger than 20kn (or so they say) In the old days, there were many odd looking, home built things that went everywhere. Now, the salemen push the fantastic plastic things. Are they better?

However, it is great to see people wishing to cruise. It is an art and a lifestyle we have to keep alive for the next gen.
