Very refreshing, blunt honesty!
I happen to be a fan of the older classic plastic boats myself. My Tartan 27' from 1967 may point a bit higher with it's sloop rig and center board but it is no racehorse either with her full keel. We race it just the same and have done well.
The idea of 'stable and comfortable' sounds good to me.
