I crew for a friend on a Gozzard 31, and it's a lot of fun. The cutter rig
keeps upwind channel work "interesting", and it's not the best light air boat in the world, but she's stout, and I really like the open interior.
The Pacific Seacraft has a very similar interior, and I know the brand is also known as a blue-water friendly boat, which I presume in this case also means a little slow, stout, etc.
The Gozzard's got 2 feet at the waterline (26 vs 24) but is also significantly wider (11 vs 9 ft) but according to their websites, carries almost twice as much sail area, which seems hard to believe, so I'm not sure what to make of all this.
I was wondering how the two compare, either by the numbers, or possibly by anyone who's sailed both? I know Gozzards aren't the most popular boat out there, so I don't expect a lot of crossover experience, but any thoughts would be appreciated.
