She looks very tidy for her age. Could do with new curtains though ;-)

Thanks. My wife wants new curtains, too. Another item on my to-do list...

Thanks! She looks great. I have been looking at a P28. Is it difficult to get to parts of the engine? The one I have been looking at seemed tight.

Re: Video tour of Pearson 28

The entire companionway board removes on my boat. I believe one of the previous owners cut it that way when replacing the original engine with the diesel. You can access the sides from the cockpit lockers. So, overall access is good, probably better than most boats.

They are great boats. Very stable and fast for that era, although they are initially tender and will roll fairly easily. Carries almost 400 sq. ft. of canvas with 7,800 displacement, 40% ballast. Upwind, it will punch through chop with a lot of power - great for the Chesapeake Bay. With its masthead rig, I can carry a nearly 800 sq. ft. spinnaker, putting up almost 1,000 sq. ft. downwind. I was out yesterday taking it easy with main and #3 and the boat sailed great, running downwind at over 5 knots, upwind approaching hull speed - 6+, sometimes over to 30-45 degrees in the gusts. Upwind, I passed a Hunter 367 sailing under main sail alone (he had passengers and was taking it easy). When I saw him later in the marina, he said his instruments read gusts up to 25 mph.

You can't beat it for a tough, stable, little coastal cruiser. I feel comfortable out in the ocean in mine.

Re: Video tour of Pearson 28

Very nice James. You should try running that video through Youtubes anti-shake program to make it a little smoother.

Brings back memories. We had a 1976 that was our first racing/cruising boat. She is still in Portland harbor and we frequently race against her on my buddy's E34.

I think the P28-1 is one of the best first boats one can start with. Easy to sail. Can trim her to sail straight and can take big seas.
