Another new P30 owner here. My first sailboat - got her last March.

The hull number mystery continues as mine is a 72 and # 288.

Links to the P30 owners groups would be appreciated. I've heard of the Yahoo group, but all I've found seems dead except for spam.

Rantha: When I posted my message, I posted the wrong year of the Pearson. Mine is a 1972 with a Hull #234. Yours probably is correct with # 288. See if there is an oblong shaped plastic placque just below the companionway; on that plaque will (should) show you what the Hull # is for the boat. Only place on the boat to tell you this info. Good sailing!!!

Greetings all and congratulations on your "adoptions".

My Dad and I bought hull # 7, new in 1971 from McMichael's in Long Island. The boat was named "Hildy" in honor of my Dad's wife and my Mother.

I have many fond memories of sailing Hildy in Long Island, the Hudson River, the Atlantic and finally at Lake Lanier in Atlanta.

In 2006, after 35 years of continued ownership I sold the boat (my parents had been deceased for several years).

I hope everyone enjoys their Pearson 30 as much as we did.

Great story, LouAnn. Thanks for sharing. Seems like a big boat for Lake Lanier, but that's your best bet in N GA

I think I may run into a small problem when I try to title my Pearson 30 tomorrow. The owner signed over the Virginia title, which says that this boat, Hull #255, was built in 1973.

The boat has no HID. I checked the usual places where an HID would be present and there is no sign that there ever was one. According to Bofus and Rathra's hull numbers, my boat would have really been built in 1972, not 1973.

Just how am I supposed to convince the Maryland DNR that the Virginia title probably has a typo, and that my boat was built in 1972? I'm not finding an online resource that definitively proves what hull numbers were built during which year.

Any ideas?

What makes you think the MD DNR will care? They'll just copy the old VA title. It won't matter to them when the boat was actually built.

CONGRATS BOFUS! WOW - so many P30 owners in my area! I bought a P303 today - can I be part of the P30 group?? lol...

I'll be living aboard north of Boston or IN Boston - my plan is to settle in a marina in Salem, MA, but there is a waiting list so...

Anyway, I hope to get to know you guys (near and far) and to learn from you all. I think that part of the reason I am doing this is the great support and encouragement from you guys! When it's 20 degrees, blowing snow and ice, I'll be huddled under my blanket with my laptop (assuming power isn't out lol) and contacting you guys for moral support. CONDENSATION? What's that???

Anyway, glad to be here - hope a 303 is welcome on the P30 threads! Steve, I bought "C'est Magnifique" if you're familiar with it, and was on the water taxi today! Small world.

Take care,
Jack

Hey Everyone-

I recently purchased a P30, and it was sold to me as a '74. Her hull # is 150. After reading this thread, I am wondering... Seems like it might be a late '71 or '72 ? What do you think?

If you can find a HIN, then it's a '74. mine was built right when HIN's started. Early '73, #255. Congrats!

Thanks for your response, Bubblehead... I have a badge just under the companionway door, in the cockpit, facing aft that says Pearson Yachts and is stamped 150. does anyone else have this? And could someone remind me where other hull ID number locations are? Thanks! I'm really curious about all this stuff as I begin to refit her...
