Glad to hear from Pearson owners!
Thanks for some posts on this. I agree on their being very well balanced.
I have a '74 P-30 and on a run to Boston from Portland, made over 20 miles without really touching the wheel (no autopilot on board), close hauled. I regularly catch 20+ minutes sleep time and rarely wake up due to her falling off course. I have sailed several Pearson's and they all have performed well.
Put 1600 NM on her season before last, only about 1100 this season due to less favorable weather pattern this year.
Thanks for the comments and will be good to read more!
