I have tried both and ended up purchasing B35.5 last year. Both are nice, solid boats but with mostly two person sailing on the Chesapeake Bay the smaller boat felt like a better fit. I met an attorney last year who did maritime work in Rode Island and sailed most of the Bristols. He felt these boats could take him anywhere safely and did cross the pond on 35.5 without any trouble. This boat is build like a tank and is fairly easy to handle in the marina by me the novice.
