Bristol 35, Pearson 35, Morgan 34, Tartan 34

Of the boats on your list, (assuming that you do not mean the Bristol 35.5) I would only want to go offshore in the Tartan 34. As much as I like the Morgan 34''s these boats are getting very long in the tooth. Again, I assume that you do not mean the Bristol 35.5, the older Bristol 35 was intended as a coastal racer boat and in my book is about all that it was ideal for. I really dislike the motion of the B35. Now if you are talking about the Bristol 35.5 this would be my first choice on this list hands down. The Pearson 35 is a cool boat for bopping around someplace like the Chesapeake but again, these really are not boats that were optomized for sailing offshore.
