thanks, that was very helpfull Mr: H
Wow! I am impressed, you seem to know alot about these.
What is your background? Are you a designer or just been sailing alot?
Its funny how every one talks about how great the older Pearson ie; "Vanguard and Alberg, triton, etc"... are in off shore and capable of circumnavigation and doing circles around the globe!
But you are saying they arent really!
What would you consider a good Coastal / off shore cruiser in budget (under $15k) ?
Not looking to sail around the world, but just cruising around N. & South. Ca. Coast/ mexico and may be a trip to Hawaii perhaps at some point.
Currently i have a well setup catalina 27 and looking to upgrade.
