Any thought on the Pearson 26 OD.
I'm looking into getting a starter sailboat,(limited funds) no plans on sailing to far off islands just weekend sailing and relaxing at the marina.
I might need to sail the boat to Tampa in a year or so (moving), i would use the
ICW, maybe a Key west run after that.
My main question is how these boats sail and how well they were made compared to their counterparts.
Do they have any issues with chain plates or other hard wear problems?
I did look into the rudder post, keel bolts and deck core problems.
I have worked with fiberglass, epoxy, and can make almost anything out of wood, even built
a 16' plywood sailboat, sails and all.
thanks for your help.
