Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

My mistake on the opinion comment. I let the Vanguard and another thread (a newbie asking about which of two small boats would be better) bleed together. In both, you posted extensive replies. What can I say, after a while it all looks the same to me. I forgot that they were two different threads.

I've been following this great discussion, hopefully soaking up some knowledge, and I just can't see where Jeff is ever condescending. Knowledgeable, yes. Experienced, yes. Willing to post lengthy, detailed, well thought out replies, yes. Condescending tone, though? No.

Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

I have learned more from Jeff's posts than any other on the forum. I appreciate his thoughtful writing backed up with solid evidence. We might like different designs, but that doesn't mean we can't exchange opinions. Isn't that what the forum is for?

Take a look at this example:

1968 Pearson Renegade sailboat for sale in Colorado

Seems to me that this is a classic case of someone putting an awful lot of time and money into a boat, and wanting to get some of that back. Regardless, check out that door to the head!
I see nothing wrong with putting this much effort into an old boat. Gives others an idea of what can be achieved. And if you are going to have the boat a long time, the value added is in the use and enjoyment of the work and money spent. Trying to get too much money out is a problem, but the same goes for almost all boats. This guy isn't the first owner in la la land with his asking price.

That said, when i look at the pic of the door to the head, what I see is a door jamb that is not square. Maybe a distortion in the pic caused by the wide angle lens used for the pic, but that compression post is right there. Hmm, how many old Pearsons have i seen with this problem? Not a biggie but first thing i noticed. The door is beautiful!

Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

Jeff, you mention your posts, that there are other better options than the Vanguard/Triton within the same price range. In your opinion, what boats would be on that list?
