Default It's not the size of the boat.

It's the motion of the ocean that causes all the fun and commotion!

A 19-21 foot cuddy is not too small to be cramped or swamped by average waves or too big to be boring and unwieldy.

What about the beam to length ratio? Would you rather have a short, wide boat or a long, narrow boat?

Short and wide for roll stability for a motorboat on chop. Unless the long, narrow boat had a deep, heavy keel like a sailboat.

Not true!.
I had to run for 6 miles out from the Newport Oregon channel entrance one time to get where the swell crest intervals were far enough apart to allow me to turn around and go back in.
22ft deep hull cuddy and water over the bow. I pick my days not to go or not as it gets pretty bad in a hurry.

Chartreuse boats will never be too small.

With out experience you cannot understand a long, narrow boat that is well designed......
