I know a quite a few owners of the Compac series of boats that thought they were chunky to begin with... however, they do have other qualities that make up for their somewhat less than perfect lines...
Hobie cats, while fun boats, aren't really suitable to what you want to do IMHO, and really aren't suitable to GTB summer cruises.
BTW, I too spent a good part of my time when I was younger at Community Boating, on their Cape Cod Mercury fleet.
Are you originally from the Bay State or did you learn at CBI while attending school here?

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.
