Seems like you have some pretty dissimilar boats in your list. The Sabre, Tartan and Bristol are quite alike conceptually and different from the others. Perhaps a first step would be to zero in on your particular trade-off of quickness vs displacement. Each of these has obvious advantages and disadvantages and you have to decide what you want to do with the boat now and in the foreseeable future.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
