Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise

The Pearson 35 has a board up draft of 4' 9". 7' 9" down. Some would say it isn't a good light wind boat ( Chesapeake winds ) but I think it performs fairly well. I've heard of a few crossing the Atlantic and at least one crossing the Pacific. I'm sure there are more. The blue water purists will say that the cockpit is too large for heavy seas. But lots of room for crew and passengers!
