If you could rip all of that junk off of the stern, it is a beautiful boat. Why would anyone do that to a Pacific Seacraft?

That boat is equipped for cruising-not for around the bouys sailing.Just to add all that gear to a stock boat is an easy $20k.If your plans are to cruise that boat is a bargain IMHO.

I agree with Chuck. That is a hell of a nice 37 with loads of options/custom add-ons, at a great price. Yeah, the arch is not to everyone's liking, but I'll bet it offers some serious practical advantages.

Funny, though, I thought the TVs were overkill.:eek:

Some Disassembly required
 
I agree with others, if I were looking and the price were within my range (or even as much as 15K to 20K above) I'd bid in a heartbeat and then sell the arch to some souped up power boat quickly before I got used to it!

Agree! Very nice boats and a very pretty example. PSC was on my short list back in 2000. That "arch" however is a major eyesore. Nifty is probably right, but Larry - I agree... ugh!

I can't imagine the windvane works very well enclosed within
the super structure, other than being ugly, it's just not that
practical.

I think the PSCs are far to beautiful to ruin their aesthetics with an arch. That being said, however, once you convince yourself that you need a huge solar panel, a wind generator and radar-on-a-stick, you have to ask yourself where else is there really to put all that stuff? I think numerous 10' poles might look just as bad. My preference would be two fold-out panels mounted outboard on either side of the cockpit and the radar on the mast. There is a '99 PSC 37 listed here in SoCal with an arch too, so at least you won't be the only one. Love the TV.

BTW, you can buy a USB TV adapter for your laptop that will turn your laptop into a TV, they handle Digital broadcasts and cost less than $75. They also can be configured to handle foreign broadcast formats.
Anybody remember the 1970 Plymouth Superbird?? Kinda reminds me of that car.

My broker says that the boat seems to be sitting low in the the water at the stern. I would think that this would affect it's sailing performance, maybe cause it to hobby horse when going to weather. Also I imagine it affects it's capsize ratio.
