Re: pearson countess

I HAVE A COUNTESS THAT I HAVE GUTTED AND 95% RESTORED? IT IS A GREAT BOAT FOR CRUSING AND HAS A DESIGN THAT NEW BOATS ARE TRYING TO DUPLICATE. There are issues that have to be taken care of and require more time than money.Fuel tanks,chain plates,and deck core are the main projects. Ihave been through every inch of the boat hundreds of times and can give advice on any projects you undertake. I am on my 4th year of restoration but am going way beyond a simple fix up that you could do to just get crusing especially if you are young and willing to rough it or work as you go. The hull is built like a tank with 1/2 to a full inch hand lay up on all surfaces. The deck is so thick that wet core is not that important. Ifound all origional fittings sound and almost all added ones leaking. You will love the open salon interior and large windows. Any questions contact Phil@ bbcdocks@ymail.com
