Re: Pearson 36

The binnacle forward is awkward for going below but would be wonderful for winter sailing behind a dodger.

The wood grain Arborite can be painted easily. I have sometimes wondered what it would look like if it was varnished by hand. The imperfect finish of varnish might well disguise the "perfection" of the surface that makes it look so fake. I find the flawless factory varnish on new boats is virtually indistinguishable from Arborite.

Guess I should get a piece and try it.
