Considering a Pearson 323

UPDATE: for anyone reviewing this thread.

I don''t know what boat you were on that was deck stepped and fastened with screws, but it was not the 323.

I just took off some of the wood panels and exposed the hull-to-deck joint.

The deck of the 323 is bolted to the hull with beefy bolts. There are also self-tapping screws, but those hold the rub-rail in place. The bolts are about 6 inches apart and appear quite sturdy, with no sign of leakage or corrosion.

If you''re considering a 323 and you want a boat built like a tank, you found it.
