My biggest concern is water, Iguess I'll get a bladder tank as we only carry about 35 gallons. Honestly I am diacouraged. My wife said we'd go cruing 5 years ago. Now it is May 2009. I can't get excited as she might change her mind again. Also I am aware that I am getting older. I get tired more easily and have noticed that I am not as sharp. Even if she is ready to go I don't know about myself. Anyway the pearson is bought and paid for. I will get it ready for cruising and might go even if the wife changes her mind. I guess if the coastal goes well we might buy another boat for bluewater.

Pearson makes a damn good boat - the Pearsons built both Pearsons and Bristols - some of the boats are quite similar. I've taken Paloma deep into the blue and together, we've been through weather most sailors only read and speculate about. If you feel good about your boat and you are a good sailor - outfit her and go.
