Thanks.

I'm not too familiar with the numbers game, but I presume that, at least from a cruising standpoint, there's not that great a difference, and where there is, the performance nod actually goes to the Gozzard? (I didn't know they MADE boats slower than that lovely beast I get to take out from time to time.)

I like the Gozzard with all it's pomp and circumstance. (not to mention that I actually have access to one for sailing ) That being said, some things, like it's huge cockpit scare me in terms of going off shore. I was somewhat expecting that the PS would also be a drastically faster boat, as the Gozzard is, well, somewhat slow. Then again, most of the other boats I've spent any time on have been benehuntalinas and I suppose when you go from the really light set (mostly older and skinnier) to these more heavily laid up boats with more beam and a greater emphasis on cruising comfort.

Thanks for the info.
