For your Pearson fix I suggest joining the Pearson groups on Yahoo and Google. Those are the places the Pearsonites migrated to from the defunct Sailnet email list.

I owned a p-27 for 14 years, and now own a P-33-2. You're correct that Pearson made good sailing and tough boats.
I know I'm replying to a post that's about 5 years old, but I wanted to ask a bit more about the Yahoo/Google Pearson groups. I was a member of the Yahoo Pearson group, and DID find the folks there very helpful; I learned a lot from them. However, I cancelled my Yahoo account when Yahoo decided that my privacy was theirs to own and disrespect. Don't even ask me about Google. Sadly, without giving my soul to either of those two corporations, I can no longer communicate with those groups.

Does anyone know of any non-yahoo-or-google-based email lists for pearsons? Is there a way to circumvent the requirement of using a Yahoo or Google account for access to the existing groups?

Thanks..

Barry
