For a review of this boat by Jack Hornor (naval architect and marine surveyor in Annapolis, and SpinSheet columnist) go to:http://206.113.51.139/Articles/articles.php?ArticleID=6

Sounds like it would be a great boat for the Chesapeake. But I''m biased. I own a P-27.

The Pearson 28 is good solid transportation. Should prove reliable but not exactly exciting. These are not great air or heavy air boats and the Chespeake puts a premium on light air performance (or a good engine)

Jim,

If you buy that Coronado we will kick you out of the Pearson Sailing Association AND (EVEN WORSE) you have to return that tube of Gen-uuu-ine Dow Corning High Vacuum Grease.
