Day Sailers w/large cockpit and head?

I just got a Colgate 26 and love it. It certainly has a large cockpit (about 13 feet) and it sails great. I looked at the Sonar, but liked the Colgate much better. It sounds like I had similar requirements in a sailboat as you and I looked for some time. Most smaller sailboats (20-26 feet) sacrifice the the cockpit for a more well appointed cabin--probably because most people buying a boat that size are very interested in the cabin, even though they probably won''t use it much since they are going to be primarily daysailing. I figure that if I am going to go cruising I''ll charter a large boat somewhere really nice. If you have any specific questions about the Colgate just email me.
