Re: 28 footer recommendations (Pearson 28-2 equivalents?)

Any 1986 Pearson 28 is a 28-2.

The 28 SL that you are looking at is probably a shoal draft. That has a shorter but broader keel that is also heavier. It won't go upwind as well as the fin keel, but works better in skinnier water.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
