Our 31 is exceptionally dry, by any standard. We have a small scuttle- or companionway dodger, but except for rain it's rarely ever needed. We don't need to hide behind the dodger to keep dry from spray in the cockpit.
And it's not just dry in the cockpit. The decks rarely ever take spray.
One thing I have heard about the 37, and the 44, is that they are somewhat susceptible to being trimmed down in the nose by too much anchor chain forward. On our 31, we have combination rodes, so there's not a lot of chain weight up forward.
MC1, you mentioned a reference to the "spoon-shaped" bow design. But, the only Crealock-designed PSC with a spoon-shaped bow is the Dana 24. All the others have forward raked bows with pronounced three-dimensional flare. This is often attributed as the reason for them being so dry on deck.
