Re: water heater Pearson27
The water heaters today have more insulation than when the boat was made. Try a slightly smaller one. This comes up on the Pearson 28 list from time to time, but I don't remember what current heater is recommended. You could check the list (p28forum on yahoo groups).
I wouldn't cut the anything, it'll be hard to do that in a clean way that doesn't reduce boat value.
