Morgan OI 33 vs. Morgan OI 41

Can someone give me any feedback on the major pros and cons between these two sized Morgans, everything else being equal? Some tell me get as much boat as you can, others say go smaller.
Will be sailing on Chesapeake, IC, Florida, Bahamas and onward in increments.
Two of us. Main thing I am struggling with is I like the bed on the 41 but am drawn towards smaller. Not sure which to pursue. Any input will be appreciated for those who have slept on, lived in, or sailed on both-
Chesapeake Bay area

Go with a OI 36. Its the best of both worlds. Small enough to sail decent (vs the 41) and much larger than the 33. It has 2 cabins which is great for privacy if you have kids or guests. Drawback is the walkover cockpit.

Just purchased a 33, and after looking at both I opted to go with the 33 because most of the time I'm single handed. The 41 appeared to be a bit too much for this old guy to handle by myself. They're both great boats, neither one is very fast, but at my age fast is a relative term.

Good Luck,

We have an OutIsland 30, which we bought after selling a Claissic 41. The 41 is on a 'see the world trip'. It was too much for me to handle singlehanded, my boat partner was the real sailer. But my wife and I fell in love w Morgans and got the smaller one which we really enjoy for coastal cruising. It's a slug but tough as a tug
My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
