Re: Pearson 27 Mainsheet system

's true , Odalisque looks just like a Pearson 27 !
Tartans look so different today! It seemed unbelievable!
My current vessel is a Bristol, sail-star "26" that measures 26.9' l.o.d.
I reckon they are cuzzins, Pearson bought sailstar , changed the name to Bristolin '68
or so I hear told anaway.
dandy nice lookin boat Odalisque is Caleb & Matt

Re: Pearson 27 Mainsheet system


Yes, you are quite correct. The early Pearsons, Bristols, Cape Dories and the Tartan 27 all have a similar look. I do think of these other boats as cousins of our boat. Much of this has to do with the designs that were popular at that time (1960's and onward), which are no longer popular with builders today. As you say, the current Tartans look nothing like either the T27 or T30 which were their earliest production models. Tartan is not even really the same company it was back in the 1960's.
"Odalisque" appreciates all your compliments as we try to keep up with her "honey do" list, which never seems to get any shorter.
