HELP IDENTIFY THIS BOAT!

I am looking for infromation on a boat that was offered to me for the price of 0 dollars I know (Beware of greeks bearing gifts)anyway the boat in question is a pearson I think because the ID starts with PEA and it''s a 1975 stupid me I didn''t get the whole number. It is set up like a racer or day sailor and it''s about 26 feet the keel looks like it is one pc with the hull. the hatch into the cuddy area was offset to the starboard side. I must admit I wasn''t to interested but I should have gone topside and checked it out. looked like it draws three feet of water. I know this is rather vauge but any help from knowlegible sailors out there is better than none, changing ones mind three hundred miles away is tough.

My guess is that the boat is a Pearson Ensign. Check out http://www.miramaryc.com/ensign/index.htm

Well the PEA (Manufacturer''s Index Code - MIC) is registered to Pearson Engineering - Wisconsin. So, my guess, it was a Pearson 26. You can view some representative samples on yachtworld.com.

Sorry guys, I don''t think we have it right yet. A Pearson Ensign or Electra are not 26 feet, and a Pearson 26 has a bolt on keel. A Pearson Ariel or Comander would be 26 feet, and the Ariel came in a dinette model with an off center companionway but they were only built in the mid-1960s so I''d say that we need more information.

Jeff I think you are correct,as I stated before I only took a fleeting glance at the boat it could have been 1965.I think it had a flush deck but would not swear on that either. I''m trying to get someone at the yard to get the id # would that help, where can you get a mast that would work. It would be nice to fix it up and maybe donate the boat to one of the groups that teach intercity kids to sail, it seems like it would be very stable.

At 24 feet with a raised deck, that sounds like it might be a Pearson Lark. I am not sure what to tell you on a replacemment rig. You can buy the parts and build one pretty easy but all told they could add up to more than the boat is worth.

Could be a Cal 24 or an Islander Bahama 24.
