Re: what happened to pearsoninfo.net???

I found the Pearsoninfo.net site invaluable when I was boat shopping. The information was well organized and comprehensive on most (every?) model of boat that Pearson produced. It also had a fascinating history of the Pearson Yacht company and the people behind it.

This is long overdue, but THANKS DAN!

I sent Dan an email. It didn't bounce back so I guess his address is still good.

Haven't had a reply yet.

Trying to calculate what it would cost to fund that site.

Yes, the original website owner.

Or whoever owns the website now may run one.

I can't check this site as I am on the dumfone, not the big computer.

Its introduced on purpose by the website owner. I.e. the owner doesn't want you seeing the site anymore.

The Wayback Machine link no longer works either. The message is:

"Page cannot be displayed due to robots.txt."

Not sure what that means or if it can be corrected.

Anyone know what it might cost to host that site aside from the expense of the domain name?

Hi Dan! We're looking at a 1986 Pearson 33-2, and I saw you had posted at one point photos of a Pearson in production in Rhode Island. I would love to learn / see more! Do you have any of the information archived?

BCboy the link posted by jackytdunaway works great. Thanks.
So what's new Dan... anything to report re getting your site up again?
