Looking at older boats and I found this...
I''v been looking at Pearson 30s, of early 70''s vintage. I generally like
the condition the boats are in (I have to remind myself that they ARE almost
30 yrs old), especially compared to other builders'' boats of the same age.
Pearsons seem to have held up pretty well. Still, there are some details on
each boat that make it difficult to evaluate what shape the boat is really
in. For example, we''ve seen one that is absolutely dry inside (no water or
oil in the bilge), the hull and rigging seem to be in good shape, but the
bow fitting (which holds the roller furling unit/forestay and bow roller)
seems somewhat corroded, and paint on the engine is peeling a little
(overheating?). How major/minor are those things
