Thanks for all the good input.
Speaking of boats, it will be based in the northern Chesapeake for now but the goal is to relocate to South Florida and Biscayne Bay and on to Bimini and eventually to the Caribbean and back.
I was drawn to the Cape Dory because the prices seemed in my basic range and alot of input regarding safety, but, I am a total novice and am just starting my search.
I like the catamaran's because they have so much living space, but they are not in my price range. I will be taking a course in maryland that uses Island Packet's (32) so I will see how they are. I just want to avoid the really narrow beamed yachts I have been on---they were fast sailing but not enough room for the two of us--I think it was a Pearson.
Anyway, any good recommendations for a live aboard would be appreciated, I liked a Nonsuch I saw but folks told me they thought they were 'odd' boats. It was real roomy, though.
Thanks for your input on 'roll' and types of sailboats

Chesapeake Bay area
