Great, friendly exchange of information. It's nice not to see some of the mud slinging that happens elsewhere.
We were seriously looking at Prout Snoogoose when we were buying
our first cruising cat - they are a great boat! We ended up with a PDQ36 because the right one surfaced for the right price
at the right time. The only thing we didn't like about the used Prouts we were looking at is that they tended to be rode
hard and put away wet, if you know what I mean. And since we were planning to move aboard right away, we wanted to avoid a project
boat. We buddy cruised with friends on a Prout for many many miles and we all had lots of fun and equal ups and downs.
That being said, after nearly 6 happy years on our PDQ
, we're expecting our first baby in (yikes) 3 1/2 weeks! We decided that we need more space for the new crew. So we've moved on to a larger cat and now the PDQ
is for sale
and due to our impending arrival, we have listed her below the competition, hoping to move her quickly to a new owner.
Much of her equipment
is new as we have been outfitting and upgrading her. She is truly ready to cruise
and very well cared for, low maintenance
(as much as a boat can be), and a proven long term cruiser.
I will paste the link to the listing here, and if anyone has any questions about our boat or about PDQ's in general I would be happy to chat with you!
