Cal-28 flat top vs Haida 26

I'm looking for a boat to do the Alaska run with, and have done the trip a few times before but never in my own boat, and have located two boats I'm considering buying

Forget condition, both need work

But, I'm trying to decide between a Haida 26, and a Cal-28 flat top

Both are brick S-houses if a boat. Both are incredibly seaworthy

Cal has a little more room, might make for a better apartment when I get to Juneau, who knows

Opinions? Cal vs Haida

Sadly, I'd have to say that in the case of the Cal 28, both statements are wrong. It was designed as a bay or close coastal weekender, and not as an open water voyager. It is neither unusually well built nor particularly suited to ocean voyaging.

I dunno anything about the Haida.
