Info and Trailer set up for a Pearson 23 Sloop

I have a Person 23, not the Cat Boat or the Ensign. Here are the particulars or so I've been told; 1979 Sloop, Hull #7, Net weight 3500 lbs, 30inch draft, 18 inch keel with tiller.

I would like any information available to set up a trailer so I can haul out the boat for repairs. I've never seen the boats bottom and our lake's visibility is about one foot on a good day,so underwater observation is not an option. Likewise we tried to heel the boat over to get a look but were not able to hold it or get it over far enough. Any help, would be appreciated.

If there's a marina with a travel lift in your area, that would probably be cheaper in the long run.

Unless you plan on storing the boat on the trailer, and moving the boat with the trailer, then PBzeer may be right in that a local marina with a travel lift may be the way to go.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Jim,

Have you tried careening your boat on a sandy beach? I was researching it earlier, and in tidal areas it's the preferred method for inspecting bottoms... but even at a lake it should be do-able.

pluscard-

Are you aware that very few lakes experience tides... so careening is generally not an option in them.

Thanks for the advise. Rise and fall of the lake is less than 2 ft. I do plan to bring the boat home approx 1 mile from ramp. I need to do deck repair and a paint job.

I'm still holding out for someone that has or has had this boat in the past to see the posting.

The person you need to talk to is SailorMitch. He is the Pearson guru.
