Teak decks? Hoyt boom? Go for the Crealock.

Lots of sailing Crealock

Lots of variables though as both are well made. Depends of your usage

Of course they were Clay I was aware of that

Maybe I am wrong but I thought the Pacific Seacrafts were affectionately called "Crealocks" where I've never heard anyone call a Cabo Rico like you have that

Thanks James
James--Other than LOA there is quite a difference between the CR34 and PS34. You might compare them by looking at (click on) CR 34 and PS34. Although both were designed by Crealock, the design briefs for the boats was quite different as evidenced by the hull shape,beam, displacement, and, particularly the keel/underbody. While you would get quite a bit more boat with the CR34, it's performance would likely not be as good as that of the PS34 although, to some extent, the greater sail area and motion of the CR34 might obviate that difference. I guess, as mentioned by other contributors, the question of which boat is right for you is more dependent upon your objectives/priorities. Once you've sorted that out, the choice will become more obvious without the input of others who's suggestions will be predicated upon their priorities rather than your own.

FWIW...

Captjac..suggest to ask your CR questions on the Cabo Rico goggle groups forum where most CR folks hold out
