For you folks with pullmans, please tell me you have lee clothes.

I sailed a Hylas 46 with an island queen and a pullman from Newport to St Barths. The island queen was unsleepable on any tack, the pullman was useless on a port tack (Bermuda to St Barths.)

The Catalinas are nice coastal boats. The forward head / shower on the 42 is nice. The gallery storage is wanting, but the top loading / front loading fridge seems to work.

Offshore - tougher choice; of the boats that I have sailed - Saga 43.

We do have a lee cloth on the pullman however it is mostly there to prevent sail bags and such that we are storing on the bed from falling out. In my opinion berths that large, wile great at anchor, almost always make for poor sleeping when offshore (I prefer a nice tight space to wedge myself into) so when sailing we usually sleep in either the pilot berth or on the settee witch also has a lee clothe.

How does she sail? What's it like to drive that thing hard?

I have looked at/been on a big Hans C (forgot the LOA - looked pretty much like yours though), they are probably my favorite big boat (big to me at least).

I love the cockpit layout and and the chests built in on the deck. Awesome boat, I'd want mine to have a tiller..

I love my little daysailer. But I'm lusting for a Block Island 40.

Since you are talking older boat, what I have, a Jeanneau Arcadia. Read about it HERE

It would definitely NOT be a full keel some thing or other. Altho a J109, Jeanneaus SF 35 or 37, C&C 110 or 115 among others would work too.

To live aboard, a Liberty 458. To just coastal cruise, my Cat 36 suits me fine.

My opinion seems to change with the wind...
I've had my eye on Mono's, Cat's & even trawlers

Well, today it would be this one:
50' Ron Given designed, NZ built Cat. for distance sailing.
The boat we have right now is perfect for coastal.
