boatless swine

I have been looking at the Pearson 424 as a replacement for my last boat sold a month ago. Could the usual suspects weigh in.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Pig -- OK, I"ll bite. Of course, I am a huge Pearsonite so keep that bias in mind. I currently own a P-33-2, my second Pearson. YMMV.

I can put you in touch with at least one former owner of a 424 if you'd like. He sailed his all up and down the east coast and sold it to a fellow who was taking it to Europe. A fellow who used to post on here quite a bit named Jack (can't recall his screen name right now -- drat!) had one that he and his wife sailed all over Europe as well. It will go anywhere.

It really is a fantastic boat -- I love the lines. If I had the money and needed a boat that big, it would be my first pick. Check out the interior layout to make sure it suits you. As I recall (I tend to get the big Pearson's confused on layout) it has two companionways, one aft and one forward. Some people like it some don't of course. It's big and strong.

The 424 is aft cockpit. The 422 is center cockpit -- but they share the same hull.

Here's a link for some 424 info. Note the two companionways, although you may have to look hard. Pearson 424

Get the 422...rare but great!
Actually the 424 is an excellent boat but arrangements in the cabin are a bit different than most boats so it is a matter of personal preference on the accomodations.

Yes, dog, I looked at a 424 and love the layout. I was just fearfull it might be slower than I want. Not a fan of center cockpits unless they are as big as Cam's, I will look into the 422 as I did not know they shared the same hull. I think you are talking about Whoosh, Sailormitch. I am just gathering info at this point. Thanks all.
