Re: Pacific Seacraft South Seas 61

Thanks all. Agree the spade rudder looks vulnerable. Agree, narrow boat - makes it look fantastic, sleek and seaworthy, but screws the accommodation, which is an important factor if spending 3-5 years afloat with frequent long-term guests. The Memsahib has now vetoed the PSC out of hand, based on the few pics I have shown her. However this has been a valuable exercise for me as have investigated many more designs, which will lead to discussions and suggestions and design changes to whichever custom or semi-custom boat I go for.
However, as a first, speculative post, I was not sure of it's reception. Thanks for your time and effort, will keep you informed.

PS. Halberg Rassy - never sailed one, never been on one, never spoke to anyone that has one, they look good and I have read good reviews - AND YET - I still don't like the damn things. Totally irrational I know, I suppose I am the same with people and hats. Is this irrational, unfounded dislike of a boat common amongst the community?

Re: Pacific Seacraft South Seas 61

Yep. All boats have their 'intangible' qualities too. These can either turn you on or put you off completely. Hardly ever is there a way to verbalize this X factor. There is no such need, in fact.

I think one must search their soul and go for a boat that is not just good and seaworthy but above all the one that inspires our dreams and 'takes us' places.
