cruising experience and it was comfortable enough. It did slam a bit in 4' waves. After a week the outboard
motors quit and the charter
base substituted a Fountain Pajot Athena 38. It seems like a substantial upgrade. It was faster and did not slam in the same 4 foot seas and there was just more room everywhere. After 2 weeks on the Athena I would not have settled for the PDQ if choosing one or the other.
