OldColumbia is on a distinguished road
The old Columbia 39 and 43 " bubble tops" are renowned for their headroom below. However, they're kind of dark because unlike the Coronados that share the same hull volume, they don't have ports below the gunwales.
I agree with many posters that a well balanced, bigger than 30' high displacement hull is much more sea kindly and comfortable to single hand. The key in most boat handling is "feel" for the boat and slow, deliberate planned action.
