Pearson 36

All the Pearson 36s I've seen have been fixed keel. The Pearson 35 however is a keel/centerboard with 3'9" draft with the board up and 7'5" with the board down. The 35 sails and balances well and is a very sturdy boat. I've had mine in several gales and it does well. The only difference I've seen between the 36 and the 35 is the 36 has a pilot berth along the engine area and it's about 2,000lbs heaver. The 35 is listed as a coastal boat but I would't be afraid to take it anywhere.
