I love the old threads dragged up from obscurity.
Sailormitch are you still on the P-33-2?

I am currently in a boat search and have been told by many (brokers, sailors & surveyors) that while Pearson on the whole made a great boat that one should stay away from the p-31. Is this valid? The number one reason among others given for that was the decks were poorly constructed. The reputation seems that the P-31 was the dog of the line.

Don't kill me, I'm just the messenger.

SOASOAS,

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.

Sabre 30 Mark II

My impression is that the 30 Mark II is not so different from the Mark I. Thie big changes did not come until the Mark III (I owned a Mark III).

If that is correct, the Mark II will be a great boat. Sabre did great design jobs on their early boats: they were good upwind boats, sturdy underfoot (nothing flexes or bends when you move your weight around), and looked good.
