sailingdog One other thing... PROPWALK... most outboard powered boats don't really deal with this at all... with an in-board, it becomes a fact of life... especially in reverse. The way to get around it is to pulse the prop to keep the boat moving... rather than trying to keep the prop moving at a constant speed. It really does vary significantly with each boat, so you best practice where there aren't any obstacles to hit.

Otherwise, you'll probably find that the larger boat is actually a bit easier to handle in many ways.

Thanks for all the replies and for the manual phallo153.

The P-27 first came out in 1987 so this is not an issue for the poster. (And per Dawg's post, on the P-27, the secondary place for the HIN is on the interior of the hull way back in the stern. I found it by accident once.)

Yes, but some manufacturers had a hull number of their own on much before they were required. Some also had a builder's plate on the interior of the boat.

BTW, HIN's are legally required to be mounted in two locations, one is the starboard transom, and the other is generally somewhat more difficult to find, much like the secondary and tertiary VIN's on automobiles, to make them a bit harder to alter when the boat is stolen.

SailorMitch The HIN (hull ID number) on all boats (so far as I know) is located on the stern, starboard side just below the hull/deck joint.

amayotte Thanks, I'll check it out.

Does anyone here know where to find the VIN number on the P27?

sailingdog Amayotte-

There was a recent thread on moorings that you should probably search for, since it mentioned several good articles on sizing a mooring. However, 3/8" chain sounds a bit small for a mooring for a P27.

amayotte Thanks for all the stories guys, it really gets a guy excited about sailing and I'm not too worried anymore.
I'm going this weekend to look at one and you never know, I just might be getting a late X-mas present.

I was wondering though...

Does anyone know how well she sits in the water anchored in heavy winds and high waves?
I keep a permanent anchor off shore and am trying to determine how much weight is required.
At the moment I use a 45 gallon drum full of concrete and rock. Attatched is 3/8 grade 8 chain. It only needs to hold a 21 foot Sirius (which is for sale), Would this be enough for the P27?

The Pearson 27 was my first boat, like you I was intimidated at first. When I took a look into the lazarette with all the cables and hoses I said "no way"! Even called off a sea trial, telling the broker I thought it was too much for me. At that point in time I had been looking for something smaller, along the lines of a Beneteau First 235.

I changed my mind after about a week and went for it - no regrets

TDMModels I'm a new Pearson 27 owner, 1987 #19.
I bought it the first of December and so far have sailed it for about 20
hours on 6 occassions. Previous to the Pearson my experience was with
a 14' dinghy (Hunter 140). My wife and I are having a great time with the
Pearson. The first time out with the boat after taking delivery was by ourselves.
We adapted quickly to the bigger boat. Learning on a small boat is a great way to
learn.
