Seaway vs. Eastern handling

This is my first post. I've been reading here for a while and really learned a lot from you guys. Thank you.

Right now, I have a 21' Seaway Sport. It's a great boat and I love everything about it, but I now want a boat that we can camp out on. Someday, I dream of having a Rosborough but can't afford it now. If I sell the 21', I can probably afford a new Seaway 24 Hardtop Sport or a used Eastern 24.

Boat would be used from Casco Bay up to Cobscook, never far offshore. We are old farts and never go very fast. A top end of 18 or so is plenty, usually we're content to putt along at 6 knots. We fish a lot and explore a lot of very skinny water. Two of us would sleep aboard for a few nights at a stretch.

Would the Seaway be more stable at anchor?

Which would you buy?

Thanks for your help with this.
