We looked hard at one of those here, and we really liked the boat. The couple on it were great, and took a lot of time to show us the boat. They love it, too.

In the end, we decided that to be honest with ourselves, we needed more real estate. But from what I've found it's hard to beat a PDQ.

I've been researching boats for a while now, years, and every PDQ sailor I've talked to loved their boat.

Congratulations!

When I looked into it swapping out the carbs was not the only thing different. The reed valves are a different size. The block cutout is bigger also, meaning a different block.

I think Yamaha knew this during manufacture. They would not sell many 15s if it was really easy.
