Re: PSC lust

I haven't sailed a Flicka, but I used to own another Bruce Bingham design, and I found the boat sailed better than the numerical figures and common wisdom might suggest, she had similar ratios to the Flicka.

It's true you will be motoring in light winds, but that's what I see most people doing any way. The boat is probably over kill for Chesapeake Bay, but I suspect she'd be pretty comfortable in all but the worst blows.

Note the Flicka 20 is 800 pounds heavier than the PSC 25. She'd be a lot of boat to trailer.

There used to be a company that had a Flicka 20 in their charter fleet on the Bay of Quinte in Canada, but I think they maybe might not be around any more because my google searches are turning up nothing.
