Re: 1976 Pearson 26
I had a P26 about 12 years ago. Sailed her on Lake Ontario. Stiff hull - not much flexing, well made, fun to sail, sailed nice in the Wednesday night beer run races. I took a day off for a overnight sail one day but there was a storm moving in and my wife wanted to put off the sail. Only day off in months so I said lets go anyways and will stay within Henderson Harbor. Handled the storm with no problem at all, in fact it was a great sail with a strong breeze.
Watch out for that wood beam as you enter in and out of the companionway. I have hit my head on that beam too many times.
For what to look for, it all depends on how well someone took care of it. We had very little problems with our P26.
From the pictures, looks nice. It's priced right at $1,200.
