Also, I was just thinking, with a theoretical hull speed of 6.83 knots, we often saw an indicated speed of 8+ kts. Now, presuming the knotmeter was a little "optimistic", and call it 7, that's still not that bad. Perhaps these cruising boats just "feel" slow, as I'm not bashing my brains out.
For whatever it's worth, I've been admiring the PS31 for some time, and it wasn't until yesterday that I realized that it had numbers similar enough to a boat I actually spend some time on that I thought I'd ask about it. For the moment, I sail other peoples boats, which means I'm not picky, but I save and I dream
