1) Yes, I still have my P-33-2 and am quite happy with it even though since it has a wing keel, I'm lucky it goes forward when I put the sails up from what I've read on another thread! I gather it really should sail backwards in the opinion of some! Oh well.
2) I think I just answered that same question on another thread about the poor, maligned P-31-2. I am not aware of Pearson building the deck of the P-31 any differently from any other boat during that period, nor am I aware of widespread problems with the P-31. But without maintenance of deck hardware any boat can become a problem. As I've said before, I know several owners of P-31-2's and will be glad to put anyone in touch with them to get first hand information rather than rumors.
3) Yes, digging up these old threads is a blast from the past.
