Re: Catalina 27 or Pearson 28 or Ericson 32
My boat is a tad bigger than a C27, in line with a C28mkII, and probably a pearson 28. If you like tight spaces, great. If not, go with the E32 or equal length boat, assuming reasonably maintained. It will also be the faster and probably better sailing of the three!
