cranki is on a distinguished road
We used to have a Pearson 26 back in the mid 70's and sailed it from Western CT up to Martha's Vinyard, Block Island, Shelter Island etc... It is a very responsive sailor and can handle rough whether but also can be a rough ride in the LI Sounds steepish chop. The Sea Dog II Held family of 5 comfortably enough for weekend and week long cruising and did OK round the buoys as well.

I would consider a boat of that size but would prefer to have an's just easier, quieter and more powerful. There will be many wind challenged July days when you want to get from A to B...just sayin'.
