roll at rest

am hoping to get my lady into extended cruising and am looking to buy my 2nd used boat. (My first was a West Whight Potter)
Question: as far as comfort moored or in a slip regarding wave/roll/motion of the boat, which ones of these, in your experience, has less motion at rest than the others:
1.) Morgan Out Island 30 foot
2.) CSY 30 foot
3.) Irwin 37
You know, the relatively inexpensive 30 footers made in the late 70's and early 80's that are in my price range.
Thanks for your input-

Motion Comfort should give you an idea.

The one with the least motion is not necessarily the most comfortable to be aboard. "Seakindly" is what you may be looking for. Seakindly boats may move more than stiff, heavily (and deeply) ballasted boats, but their motion is slow, even, and somewhat reassuring. A deep, heavily ballasted boat won't move much, - it may have the least motion - but it will be more of a jerky, hard motion. None of the designs you cite are examples of stiff, heavily ballasted boats, but the bigger one may simply be able to absorb more wave energy by virtue of its size, and provide an easier ride because of that.

I would think boats with a lot of from stability (beamy) would have a quicker roll rate. My Catalina 22 was all ass; it would jump all over the place with each motor boat passing.

dont forget about hanging a 5 gallon bucket off each side in the water to slow the motion too.

also maybe worth noting that boats with lower roll tendencies tend to stay at the max angle longer as they come back through the cycle. i guess im saying you may 'roll less' but be 'at angle' for longer time periods.

maybe consider a multihull?

Multihulls tend to have a much quicker motion but often through a much shorter range of total movement due to their extreme form stability. Some people aren't bothered by the motion of a multihull, while others do better with the slower motion of a monohull.

I have been in a few anchorages where the monohulls had to clear out due to excessive rolling from the incoming swell... leaving nothing but us multihulls behind.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I would love a multi-hull---it would be my boat of first choice if money was not an issue. My budget is half the price of used multi-hulls-

Looking at a Morgan OI 41, a CS 44, that category-

You could probably get an Iroquois, Catalac or Prout Snowgoose for the price of a CS44 or OI41.

I've only sailed on a Morgan 41 OI once and it was a relatively slow boat, but very comfortable and very little roll. If you're lucky enough to find one in good shape I would have it surveyed and if everything looks OK, jump on it. They're built for comfort--not speed!
