Pearson, IMHO, was one of the better builders of their time. They were not designed to cross the Atlantic in a hurricane, but you don't want to be out there then either. Some of the best Pearson models were built at the end of the Pearson era (1987-1990).

I would look VERY carefully at the deck, especially near stanchions, for soft spots, or delamination. Look at the boat inspection tips thread for a good explanation of what else to look for.
