James,

I'm pretty sure those sail area specs for the Gozzard include the staysail, whereas I know for a fact that the number for the PS 31 does not. So I don't think the SA/D figures above are really accurate, at least not for comparison purposes (apples to oranges).

I think you would find the Gozzard felt quite a bit larger below decks. That extra 1'+ beam makes a big difference in hull volume.

Then again, the extra hull volume usually comes with a performance penalty. I expect that the Gozzard uses it's staysail routinely, whereas we don't really need ours for the most part to keep the boat moving nicely.
