About our boat…..

Her name is “Almost Purrfect”.   We spent several years searching for the “perfect”  Boat – knowing already it does not exist.  Funnily enough, we started our search wanting a PDQ MV/34, but the costs for (what I liked to call them) a “box” on the water (due to their peculiar design) was not quite looking like a sleek vessel or a traditional Trawler.  I just had a hard time justifying the prices they they were asking for available used PDQ’s on the market. They are all “used” trawler cats due to the Canadian company that made these PDQ’s went out of business about a decade ago during the recession for various reasons.  However, after looking at thousands of boats on line, probably visiting a 100 in person at least 3 offers (on other boars) and one failed survey and sea trial (an expensive lesson) on an accepted offer on a 46′ Jefferson – the cost of the PDQ was starting to look very practical indeed. 🙂
