Pearson 34 Centerboard

I would appreciate any information members have about this boat. How does the shoal draft keel affect pointing ability? Is this a tender boat versus the regular keel? Any comments about the build quality?

Pearson's are generally well-regarded boats with decent build quality. There have been several threads that discuss the P34CB.

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.

Post this question on the Pearson email list here on Sailnet. You'll get some responses from owners of these boats. Too hit or miss on this BB.
