  Never seen a Pal in person.

But it compares pretty well on paper to a Penobscot. The Penobscot does pretty well in wind, is pretty efficient for an ABS hull, and has excellent secondary stability and no bad habits. It requires some skillful attention in class two drops. My Penobscot is close to, but not quite as efficient as my Malecite. The Malecite seems to me not quite as efficient as the Escapade.

I suspect that a composite Pal would outperform a Penobscot, but haven't had a chance to put that to a test.
