Benchy PETG Issues

I am having some issues with printing with PETG and would like help to understand what could be going on.

Orange Benchy: Prusa Slicer , 0.2 mm Quality, Prusament PETG (using Prusament PETG setting)

Clear benchy: Prusa Slicer , 0.2 mm Quality, Prusament PETG (using generic PETG setting) 

Pink Benchy: Prusa Slicer, 0.2 mm Quality, Overture PLA (Using Overture PLA setting) [For reference]

 

For the most part, I am happy with the Pink bench quality (there are some weird ringing / artifacts on the arch of the benchy) - so maybe the axes need to be greased possibly.

However, on the PETG benchies - there is a weird artifact on the Bow (surface finish is terrible, and material did not fill).

Could anyone suggest what could be potential causes that I can investigate?

Not bad but

Not bad.  Consider slowing the print down and I think you need to dial in your Z offset a little.
