Re: FIRST SAILBOAT! 1978 Pearson Ensign

You did good. Thats a great starter boat for sure. I have a boat that many confuse for yours, its a 1967 Sailstar Corinthian. You'd swear both of our hulls came from the same mold. Nice deep rudder and a stable keel platform. Mine is not as nice as yours is ( yet!) but I'll be painting soon and finishing my interior. I'm keeping all the wood as it looks great when finished properly. My cockpit sole(floor) it teak slats too, looks like you have a hatch or two there. You lucked out getting such a nice trailer. You'll probably need a hitch extension to launch as you really have to sink the trailer a ways to get that keel off. Not sure what your ramps are like there. I didn't see an extension in your photos??? Mine will stay in a slip, haul out for hull wash and hurricanes, we get a lot of 'em here it seems. (Mississippi gulf coast. Best of luck to you, get her in the water ASAP !!!! Bruce
