Pearson KCB 34 1985

Looking to purchase a 34' that appears to be in decent condition. Anyone with pros and cons on this version? Thanks

I have a Pearson 36, 1973 for sale. We are the second owners and have upgraded since we purchased it.

Thanks, looking forward to working with it..
I'm just getting into the sailing area......have a friend that has been in it for many years and is anxious to "show me the "ropes"....

I know there is a lot to learn. Have been doing a lot of reading....and from my perspective...want to approach from the safety side.

Have a Happy New Year!!

DLM -- Congrats! You bought a great boat, but then I am biased. I've owned 2 Pearsons (currently own a P-33-2.) I do suggest joining the Pearson email list here on Sailnet to get the best audience for emails. Lots of good people on that list.

Thanks Sailor Mitch...

Where is the Pearson email sign up area? I do have some questions... I see a lot of info here and there on various sizes...but nothing on the 34's....

I do have some water problems to deal with. Think it's coming from the stantions...need to be pulled and reset?

Anyhow..appreciate the input.

Butch -- In the Resources pull down menu, click on the one that says Email Lists. Then go to Pearson and sign up. It's easy to do. Ask your questions there about the boat -- there will be people on the email list who have the same model.

The stanchions could very well be leaking, and it probably is time to rebed them anyway. You should have access to the nuts for the bolts inside the cabin. There's a really good process to follow for rebedding at www.pearsoninfo.net that someone else also recommended. That site belongs to a fellow named Dan Pfeiffer and he has done a terrific job with that site.

Good luck, If you have problems signing up for the email list, just holler at me.
