Pearson 27

Anyone done some real cruising on a Pearson 27. We love ours, and have thus far done some week-long trips.

I keep mine on a lake so we can't really go cruising. Long weekends are great though

It really is a great boat for trips, with the huge ice box, alcohol galley and walk-in head. It is perfect for a couple or 3, and the shallow 3'-3" wing keel lets us get stuck in adventurous places here in coastal NC.

Did my first blue water crossing from Miami to Bahamas on pearson 27. Great boat but not really ment for real blue water. A little blow up in the gulf made her a hobie horse under two reefs. She is solid and and sound but shoal draft means reef early and often if your crew wants to eat hot food and not sleep with the curtains up, but for a beach comber, island hopper, small family or couple she is grrreat!

Does any one still have information on the starting problem characteristic to many P27's? It was a problem with the size of the wiring between the switch and the starter solenoid. But I don't remember which wire.

Sounds like the issue with a number of Yanmars. Problem was excessive voltage drop due to long cable run. Solution is to add a starting relay. A Google search will produce the needed details.
