I'd generally agree that I wouldn't change much on the 37, it's all trade offs, and while the water and fuel can get a little low, it has not been awful for us.
We spent 4 months in the Bahamas this winter and before leaving were discussing water capacity with an old cruiser in Key West. My friend thought that the PSC's ~80 gals was not near enough. The old timer chimed in, that in the Bahamas, the 500 gals he carried, or however much you could carry was never enough, it's just too dry there. And he was right.
So, water wise, our plan is to install a water maker for extended cruising in remote, arid environments. But, for one-off ocean passages, you can buy flexible bladders that fit in the storage compartments and just plumb into the existing system with hose, and remove when you get where you're going.
These are also sold for fuel in the commercial environment, but I haven't looked around to see if they exist in small boat capacities.
