Re: Cape Dory 31 or 33?
We use the settee's - each has a lee cloth. If we are 2-up, we usually hot bunk on the leeward side. We have not done an offshore passage with more than 2 (I've done a couple solo). All in all, I would like to have a q-berth for that extra sea berth, but we make do (in luxury by some standards). My first choice was for the standard CD33 (which has a q-berth) but this was the best boat on the market so we went with it. No regrets (the 330 has both advantages and disadvantages compared to the 33).
Keep an eye on the CD board -- sometime there are some real bargains.
