After having raced it for the past 4 years, as well as pulling it, doing the bottom, and the mast, and pretty much rebuilding the whole thing except the motor, I can tell you it's a great boat. Here's an example, the sea-head was replace with a porta-potty and of course some gorilla got into a fight with it and there was spillage. The next day, I pull the forward floorboards and begin spraying it with a garden hose and scrubing with soap, and was able to get to every crack and corner. That's my point, you can get to absolutely everything and it's not cluttered with unnecessary furniture like wet lockers. It's open and actually cooler than other boats because of the smaller windows. It drives like a truck and doesn't round up as easily as most boats, and it's fast. I've raced it in about 50 phrf races on a Lake Lanier against some really really good racers, and when the wind blows 8 to 10, it moves against everything else in its class. It also move really well in no air races too. It's actually a good first boat as it responds quickly and yet is slow enough to allow you a make those decisively quick changes in direction when needed. I've taken as many as six of us boat-camping where we anchored, swam, cooked steaks, had cocktails, sat around and told stories, and slept. It's turned out to be a very friendly boat to both new and experienced sailors because of it's flat deck and hugh cockpit and working companionway. And, here's the best part, it doesn't take an accountant to purchase and maintain. I'll close with this, when I ask owners of other types of boats, what they think of their boat, I usually get something like 'its okay', but every time I talk to a Pearson Flyer owner, they say, '...it's a great boat,... I'm glad I own one now,...it's so much better than anything else I've owned....' Want more info, contact the Pearson Flyer email group at pearsonflyer@yahoogroups.com
Happy Sailing,

I only bought it last year but found it fun and fast. Did the deck this year, most will need it if not already done. BMW engine replaced with new Yanmar. Would love to hear from other owners with their racing secrets.
