Re: 1990s Coastal Cruisers vs. Mid 70s Bluewater Boats

Part of what I'm looking for, maybe most, is some opinions on the newer systems boats built in the 90's would have. Would these newer systems on production boats trump the heavier build of bluewater boats built in the 70s so one could consider them as safe for long distance off shore cruising?

Would rigging technology and improved manufacturing techniques make a 90's mid level production boat just as sound?
