Best small C&C (29-37') for rough water?

Hello all,

I have looked at quite a few C&Cs in my search for a good cruising boat that will safely take us along the BC inside passage, and around Vancouver Island.

I understand that the 30 mk1 is among the stiffest, but I don't know how this equates to blue water safety (by bluewater in this case, I meant the kind of seas off the coast of northern BC and Vancouver Island, not crossing the Pacific). I recently looked at a 35 mk2 which seemed pretty solid, but passed on it for other reasons.

Which of the models between 29 & 37 would you recommend for coastal cruising for two people, with an emphasis on motion comfort and safety?

I like C&Cs, but I am also considering many other boats, especially long heel or full keel boats, and some of them are even fairly decent performers (Nicholson), but they are not common around here.
