Need to get to a seacock, battery, or dipstick? Access the outboard sides of the engines? The genny's stick and filter? Access aboard the 34PC is all-around great. Plus, you can get into the compartment three ways. One, lift the entire cockpit with the flip of a switch. Two, open a large manual hatch aft over the motors. Or three, use the additional manual hatch for step-down access in front of the motors. Diamond-plate work platforms are right where you need them, and the entire compartment is white, which makes drips and leaks stand out and is more reflective and thus provides more light. Gray engine spaces are the norm. But white is right. I could go on-the bonding system, the extensive chafe protection, the drainage, insulation-but you get the picture. Besides, let's see how it runs. After all, that's the point, isn't it?
