Re: Pearson 36
If I'm remembering them correctly, the P36 is a nice boat for sailing. Where the P365 is targeted a little more towards the folks who might want to squeeze a very small billiards table in the salon. Nice, just targeted to different purposes.
In port or living aboard, wide spaces are nice. At sea in rough wx, wide spaces just mean a better chance of getting thrown further and landing harder with less to grab onto.
Horses for courses.
