Like this one?

1975 Pearson 36 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

A couple of things we didn't like about this vintage of Pearsons was the binnacle-fwd-against-the-bridgedeck setup, and the what looked like arborite bulkhead faux woodgrain finish.

She seems to have a fairly heavy IOR 'bustle' and a largish skeg - the latter will help tracking but slow tacking and perhaps adversely affect reversing under power. Cleaned up, though, like SJB said, pretty boat!
