I just joined and have a little insite for you if you are still looking at the 351. I bought a 351 a few years ago and for a sailing couple this is our dream boat. A few things we were looking for was ease of single
handling as my wife & I are a bit over the hill although have been sailing for 47 years. First all lines leading aft including head
& main furling
. Walk through transom with dingy davits
. 3 berth layout for guests to store gear
on extended ventures. Large galley
as we enjoy eating. This I found with the 351.
