Considering a Pearson 323
Live aboard fine. It''s a good looking and roomy boat.
But offshore I don''t know. The hull is fastened to the deck with self tapping screws and the mast is only deck stepped.
A friend owned one and he beat me when I had a C&C 30. The bottom on the C&C needed cleaning. This is my only excuse.
The 323''s had Atomic 4''s. If any engine is not running right it''s a big deal. Get expert on site advice on this. A rebuilt will cost you $5K before you know it.
