Okay, regarding the reference to the Pearson Vanguard being better for offshore, I have to ask. Have you ever looked at these two boats? Do a couple quick searches and look at the hulls. Can they be any more alike? In that Clint Pearson was involved in both, it's pretty obvious. Also, look at the numbers:

Select the two boats, and compare. How much closer can they be? But, one is good for offshore, and the other isn't? Again, substantiate your claim.
