Pearson 323 - suitable bluewater cruiser??

I can''t say I know much about your specific boat, but it is my understanding that Pearsons don''t suffer from being underbuilt. There are certainly a lot of people out there in older Vanguards and Tritons doing a lot of offshore sailing. A beautiful Vanguard just graced the cover of Cruising World a few months back as a matter of fact. The boat was highly recommended as an affordable / upgradeable offshore cruiser. I own a 1969 Morgan 33, and have the same reservations regarding a "vintage" boat and all, but after studying the boat, talking to other owners, and working hard to upgrade the right systems, I feel confident that it''ll do just fine. If you do the same, I''m sure you''ll find you feel the same way.

Good luck

Rob
