Help with Choosing Size of Boat, Please

Hi out there
I've been around boats most of my life but mostly lakes. I'm looking to get out on the sound to do some day trips around the islands and up to bc. want a faster boat more than a cruiser. thinking around a 20-24 foot any suggestion out there?
Thanks Michael

Where's your intended starting point?
Sail or Power ?
Gas or diesel ?
Max Speed in mind?
Price range ?

hull style will mean a lot, if power a small deep V will handle better in rough water. So do not just decide by boat size.
