Sailing qualities

kwaltersmi,

Lots of good information about some of the qualities of PSC boats - I certainly agree they're at the top of my list of quality built, beautiful vessels. There is very little said here, though, about their sailing qualities. I see you hail from Grand Rapids and I'm just across the lake from you. My understanding is that the boats being discussed here are all pretty heavy in displacement and take some serious wind to get and keep them moving. Seeing as we have so many light wind days during our sailing season why would you be considering a boat that, as I've been told, is built for sailing in conditions heavier than what we normally see during our sailing season here? I have always liked PSC boats (especially the Crealock 34) but have been under the impression they just need more wind to sail in than we typically have. Maybe I just have bad information??
