Pearson 10M . am I crazy? This is not a fat keel boat
I have always owned, sailed, fat keel, traditional sailboats. Pearson Commander Alberg design, Pearson Vanguard Rhodes design.. Bristol 32 Ted Hood design.. and along comes this Pearson 10M. And I am looking at it, and wondering at it, and wondering if it was a cheaply made clorox racer. But, it is a Pearson. And Pearson built some good boats.
Can a Pearson 10M go offshore? Is it a well built boat? It is because of the deep fin keel that the price does not seem to be as much for most 32'8" sailboats of the same era?
Most important to me? The construction. My fat keel slow boats were well built, heavy. I always felt safe on the water in them.
I'm sure you all will know.. Pearson 10M ..
This may be the new me. hahah
