PSC 34/37 How fast (or slow)

Dear folks,

Jay here on Kenlanu down in the Bahamas after a 2,101 mile trip from Maine. As most of you know I love this boat, trust her with my life (literally and figuratively), and recommend her near and far. Kenlanu is a shoal draft 37'.

Recently a friend who will be heading from FL to the South Pacific in a couple of years agreed to trade in her present boat for something more suitable. BUT she steadfastly believes that the PSC 34 and 37 are slow boats.

I am afraid that I have to agree with her somewhat (and remember I love this boat!). After sailing a Pearson Vanguard with which we often passed considerably bigger boats I was shocked on getting Kenlanu to be passed -- often by smaller boats. Grrrrr.

SO

My question for all you PSC 34 and 37 owners, how do you rate the speed of your lovely boat, especially compared to other boats you have owned? Who passes you and whom do you pass?


Many thanks
Jay
