Pearson 33 1970 - anyone have experience with?

We're looking at a 1970 Pearson 33.. I can't find much about this particular model. Anyone have experience with this boat? Any issues to look for, and experience with how it sails? It looks a lot like the Pearson 30 Wanderer to me. It's got the same centerboard configuration and hull shape.

The boat we're looking at needs upgrading but isn't a complete wreck (usable as is). The price is very right. I want to make sure it's a sound platform for improvement before jumping in.

1970 Pearson 33 S/V II Dolphins

I have owned a 1970 Pearson 33 Mark I for over 12 years now. I completely upgraded and rebuilt the boat which took me over 2 years and it has had numerous upgrades since then. Google - II Dolphins Sailing - which will bring to light many details about the boat. I think she is one of the best sailing vessels of her size I have ever sailed. Moderate displacement, 4' draft c/b up, 7.5' c/b down. I installed a BetaMarine 25hp (Kubota) in 2009, and it is wonderful in every respect. Check out their website and my testimonial: Google Betamarine nc.

PS: I use the boat to run my ASA Sailing School - II Dolphins Sailing. Because she is such a great sailing boat, I have won ASA's Sailing School and Instructor of the Year Awards for the past 5 years in a row. Cheers to Pearsons!!! Capt'n Ed Shires

PSS: You can also Google Sailboatowners for info
