I'll assume you are looking at MSC in seattle? The dealer in Vancouver has a 36iP, seattle a std 36i. Not sure if they have sold a P version or not. THe 36 will be faster than the SO37. If you can spring it, seattle had a 39I for 5-6G more than a 36, a bit more interior room.
I am sure either of the three boats will work for around here just fine. BUT< as you can see the forecast, anytime you can get a tall or higher SA rig on the same hull, do so! OR< talk to Jeff at MSC, and have a drifter jib made for the less than 7 knot days around here. THe one made for my 30'r works really well!
By the way, there is no blue water around here unless you do a circumnave of Vancouver Island, or go north to Alaska. And reality is, even if you did a circumnav of Visland, you would not have any issues in the summer. I would do this in my 30'r, folks have done it in Kayaks, along with mid 20' boats.
