Richard, the Chesapeake is chock full of happy P-323 owners. To reach some of them, post your question on either the Sailnet Pearson email list, or join the Pearson email group on Yahoo. There has been a lot of traffic on both about the 323 lately. Also, check out www.pearson323.net
for information. The boat is no speed demon in light air, but it moves nicely from what I hear. But get the information from the owners directly.
