Re: 28 footer recommendations (Pearson 28-2 equivalents?)
The only Pearson 28 made in 1986 is the 28-2. It just says Pearson 28 on the side. It is easy to tell the 28-2 and the older 28-1 from each other in photos. Both are nice boats, just very different designs.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
