Re: Southern Cross 28 seaworthiness vs Morgan 33

Oh and I forgot, there was one other reply to my private inquiries. Although it was not personal experience of the writer..."I exchanged emails with Charley Morgan some time ago and he told me the 33 Classic (not the Outisland) was one of his favorite boats as far as its sailing qualities go. We had planed to use ours for cruising and while I am sure it would have been quite capable, I feel the interior space is a bit limited." So quite indirectly, I have the thoughts of Charley Morgan, but I am not exactly sure what "favorite boat" implies. Form the point of view of racing it might be fantastic, but it might be a bit low to the water and wet, not so good for cruising? (which is why the 33OI has higher top-sides?)
