Re: Southern Cross 28 seaworthiness vs Morgan 33

Hello, my name is Anders and I'm a boataholic!

Do you need to update your SailBoats page to add the Morgan 33'? That would bring your fleet of keel sailboats up to a total of 3: a Pearson Ariel (26'), Southern Cross 28' and now Morgan 33'. Since you seem to split your time between the left and right coasts one extra boat can be forgiven, but now you have 3! What were you thinking?

It seems that one of your goals is to sail to Norway, presumably from Maine or thereabouts. Given this information I think you know which boat I'd choose for such a trip, given your choices. You would likely be going through the Irish Sea and North Sea, or perhaps the English Channel on the way to Norway. Those waters have quite a reputation. Even commercial shipping takes the North Atlantic seriously, especially in winter:
