Re: long distance cruising in a PS 34?

Throw a Jordan series drogue off the stern, button up, take a sturgeron and go to sleep on the saloon sole just like you would on a bigger boat.
Unless you’re on a Rapido 60 this business of outrunning storms is fantasy. You can preposition to miss a cyclonic depression with sufficient forewarning on occasion but think any boat going to sea should be able to handle a gale with storm sails and a storm with drogue or sea anchor
