How many P-30's still on the water?
2 Attachment(s)
Just sitting here wondering how many P-30's are still on the water. Let's see some pics of these good old boats! Here's mine, Midnight Mist, 1972 hull #292. Second year on the water after being in dry dock for 16 yrs.Attachment 31178

Great idea Midnight Mist! Beautiful boat BTW

My old lady is still sailing and enjoying her golden years in sunny San Diego.

Her name is Vacilando, 1974 hull 603.

Any other Pearson 30 owners in SD?

Hi Daydreamer, they are good looking old boats. Yours looks well kept. Looks like we got at least one on each coast:)

Hull #22 here, recently acquired, and (hopefully) soon to be re-launched after several years (decade + ?) on the hard. I'm in CNY (Cayuga Lake).

Good luck Perkwise. There's always hope for these good old boats. Mine was on the hard for 16 yrs. Second season on the water with her and she does very well. Give a shout if you need advice. This sight was helpful in some of my decision making. Also if you have an Universal Atomic 4 motor, check out the Moyer Marine site.

Love the gray non-skid. Very classy.

I can tell you that the P30 fleet on the Chesapeake is alive and well. The P30 racing class was quite vibrant until it fell apart around 2001 or so. Costs drove people to downsize to smaller boats where it's cheaper to buy expensive go-fast parts like laminate sails, and you can get by with much fewer crew.

There are at least 4 P30's in the West/Rhode River environs.
At least one in the South River.
2 on the Severn River at EYC.
1 on the Magothy River, that races. Heyday took 2nd place in last year's Gov Cup.
1 in Baltimore Harbor.

Those are only the ones I know of. There are more, I'm sure.

Thanks Bubblehead, my wife actually picked the deck color. She's actually been working right along side me with this restoration. Nice to know there are some still on the water, so many rotting away in marinas and backyards. Wish I had the resources to restore more of them. GW and hope your enjoying the season.

Where in southern Jersey are you?
I'll be sailing around Delmarva with a probable stop in Cape May, in August.

I'm docked at Boat World Marina on the Maurice River in Leesburg. Let me know what day you'll be around the Cape. If i'm not working mabe we can get together. That's one trip I'm gonna make, mabe next year. Boat will be better equipped. Have a good and safe trip. If you run into trouble in the Delaware bay or river you can give me a call. If you want E-mail me at and I can give you a number for emergency (or beer run!). GW
