Which boat in a gale; apples and oranges
All else equal, most people would rather be in a bigger boat in a multiday storm, rather than a smaller boat. Here is what I would like your opinions about: Which boat would you rather ride out a storm in; a small off shore capable boat (like Baba 30 or PSC 31), or a much larger coastal cruiser (like a Catalina 38)? This question popped into my head because for about the same purchase price you could get a very capable small cruiser, or a much larger production boat. Would the added length and displacement of a production boat make up for the lesser build quality?
