Re: advice on some options, if you please?
Pearson made some rather sturdy boats back then. I happen to like the lines of older boats like that, hence I own a 1967 Tartan 27'.
Things to keep in mind about older boats like this:
Because all of the systems are older they are more likely due for maintenance, repair or overhaul.
Starting with the inboard engine:
- shaft, strut, Cutless bearing and shaft log hose may all need replacing
On to the boat:
- mast step may need addressing
- soft decks may need re-coring
- deck fittings will need re-bedding
- old wiring should be considered suspect
- standing rigging likely needs replacing if it is as old as the boat
Then there are the cosmetic things.
There is always more to attend to.
