I wonder if you are the guy that put an offer on the 33-2 in MD. If so, PM me. I have seen the boat, and will share my findings.
I have sailed several Pearson 34s, and 36s. I've never sailed a 33-2. But, the layout, and Pearson reputation, have made it a boat of interest to me. It has good storage, the aft cabin, availability of 3 different keels (fin, centerboard, and, on later models, wing) and a high MCR for a 33 foot boat.
You specifically mention tankage, which I believe is the weakest aspect of this vessel. The 33-2 has a 18-20 gallon tank (depending on the source of info), which should be enough for almost 40hrs of operation with the stock Yanmar 2 cylinder diesel. The greater concern, for a live aboard Bahamas cruise, is the 50 gallon water tank. I am also not a fan of the 8 gallon bladder holding tank for an extended cruise near shore.
