It is likely that if they haven't gotten a boat by now, that they're not going to...since the thread you're replying to is almost three years old.

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.

Pearson 323

Eaugallie:
I have had a Pearson 323 for 25 years on the Gulf Coast and love the boat. I love old Pearson's so much that I just bought the big siter of the 323, which is the 424. Having both now I can tell you that they are very similar with many parts being interchangable. Two things to look for in the 323 are: 1. the mast step in many of the boats had a tendency to corrode after many years of sitting in water. After reading about it on the 323 owners blog, I checked mine out and had to replace it. 2. Chain-plates. Unfortunately, a visual inspection will not expose the problem unless you pull it from the deck. Many have corroded in the area where it goes through the deck, while the rest of the c-plate looks good. That is of course true on any boat in salt environment, but I had one break on the 323 while sailing.
Also, you might be interested, I have the P323 for sale. You might want to compare it with the one you are looking at. In either case you are looking at a good solid base boat.
It is listed on sailboatlistings.com ( 1979 Pearson 323 sailboat for sale in Alabama ) and it is the picture with the red and yellow spinnaker. The boat is in Gulf Shores. If you wish you can call me at 770-313-5115 to see the boat.
