Cool! It's interesting to me to see the various differences in the boats. It seems that no two are the same, as they made lots of changes in the few years the Wanderer was in production and I'm guessing there also was a bit of customization possible based on the customer's requests. They were mostly handmade, really. My impression is that in their day, the early Pearsons were very nice boats.

I still have the original bill of sale for mine from 1968, and it sold for over $15,000 then. That is the equivalent of about $125,000 today.

Heheheh.... get back to us on that. I said the same thing about mine - I was going to do a bunch of work on her and get it all done by Spring of 2011. It's never done - and I haven't even finished half the stuff I started last year...
