Hello, from Peter: A Wannabe Pearson Vanguard Owner
I've been trolling around on the forums for a few months now, trying to read as much advice and information on boats before starting the whole process of actually buying one. I must say, I have found more or less all of the information I have needed from this site, supplemented with info from AtomVoyages, Mahina Expedition's Cruising Boat List, and Cruisingforums.
I have narrowed down my short list to a very small handful of boats, including the Pearson Vanguard, the Alberg 30, Rawson 30 and Tartan 30. The Vanguard is my top pick right now, and I think I may have found "The One" to buy!
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello, because now that I've found a potentially purchasable boat, I will probably be asking some practical questions regarding surveys, slips, boat yards, and boat loan recommendations etc. mostly pertaining to the San Francisco bay area, where I live.
