Pearson365 Vs. P35 sloop...Opinions

I am looking at a 365 and a 35 sloop. I plan on doing a lot of single handing and I''m wondering which is easier. I''ll be heading to Fla. and the Bahamas eventually. In the meantime it''s L.I. Sound to Maine. Any thoughts?

Pearson365 Vs. P35 sloop...Opinions

The 365 is a sloooooooow boat with a PHRF of 210 vs. a 165 PHRF for the 35. On LIS the 365 is going to be using the engine a LOT especially in summer when the winds are light.
Single handing ability all depends on how the boat is rigged... most control lines to the cockpit, etc.
As a former Pearson owner I considered a 365 for long distance sailing because of its storage capability, etc. but truthfully my personal tastes found it to be quite a bit undercanvassed and a poor performer for ''sprightly'' sailing. Especiallly in the tidal ''rips'' of Eastern LIS and northwards, I''d suggest a faster boat than the 365.
