PSC 34 vs Pearson 34 - a good problem to have
I currently own a Pearson 34 which I sail on Lake Michigan out of Chicago. Due to the recent passing of my Dad who was a PSC 34 owner (in Florida) I have the interesting dilemma of choosing between the two boats. I recognize the outstanding reputation of the PSC as a quality bluewater cruiser but I worry that if I keep Dad's boat I may regret the tradeoff in performance (i.e. speed and pointing ability) since most of my sailing is day sailing and/or coastal cruising on Lake Michigan.
I would appreciate your thoughts on the performance of the PSC 34 particularly in light air and any opinions regarding comparison of these two boats.
I look forward to any replies...
