Re: Comparing a P36-2/C36/C34

SA/D of 14.6 on the Catalina vs 17.4 on the Pearson. I know which one I'd rather sail. Even the tall mast Catalina 36 (SA/D of 15.9) looks under canvassed.

The Pearson was probably made to higher standards, but that is going to matter less than how each of these boats have been maintained and their current condition.

I've sailed a C-36, but not a Pearson 36-2. The C36 was the first "big" boat that I sailed, so it is hard for me to make comparisons based on that.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
