SailorMitch,

Thanks for the info and surprised there is nothing more established. Will check those out but use this one for now if it stays up.

I don't know. Really only been using this site for a couple of weeks although I joined a few months ago.
This seems as good a place as any. I have not checked out the Google or Yahoo ones as noted above. Really don't have time to be all over the place.
Maybe this one will stick and others will use it too.
Thanks.

Agree, it's a good site, I've been here for a good long while.
I was just wondering where the old pearson forum went, there were a lot of posts there, I know I started a few threads myself and posted to many others, but they're not even showing up when I search for posts I've made.

Ken.

Yep, a bit of a loss there. What a shame.

Skipper, you can join the Yahoo and Google group email lists and the emails then magically appear in your inbox--no need to go all over the place after the initial visit to join. Unfortunately those 2 lists are the best game in town for us Pearsonites. Sailnet had the email list business all to themselves until they screwed it up because they couldn't afford to buy one new server.

Pearson info

We love our Pearson 365 and cruised in it for over a year with our family of 5. Prior to that, we owned a Pearson 30, which sailed really well. It was just a little small for a year long cruise!
We are considering a 39-2 and wondering if there are any owners out there. It is a 1987 centerboard version. Any input would be helpful! Thanks

I hadn't realized that the entire Pearson thread was whacked!... It make me want to ...

There was a virtual gold mine of information here for Pearson owners, and prospective owners, like myself.

I specifically patronized SN (the business), and have encouraged others to do so, despite lower prices elsewhere, because; a - they supported the forums, and b - had the items I wanted in stock. Now I feel that some of the value of SN (the business and the site) has been diminished I imagine that Cam's recent experience with a particular manufacturer (begins with "T") may have had something to do with the decision.

This is still a lot of great info and people here in SN. I hope to continue to participate and add value where I can. It's too bad that SN is no longer the manufacturer resource that it once was.

Here is one way we can address this loss; There is a boatload of other good Pearson info out there. I only wish that I knew half of it... For those of you that would like some other sources of Pearson information, here are the ones that I use;
I encourage any others that may have good PEARSON specific resources to post links to them here.

Ed...I don't know what you mean by this comment. My decision to stop being a moderator had nothing to do with the mail lists and everything to do with not being willing to continue to support the Sailnet decision to remove my Tartan thread in the face of potential legal action. I have stated before that I bear SN no ill will for this decision but simply could no longer be associated with them as a volunteer given their decision.

I fully support their removal of the mail lists as they were COSTLY, little used and required administrative attention FAR beyond the small cost of the server. I am AWARE of the underlying details of the decision and the actual usage of the mail lists and the REAL costs and would have made the EXACT same decision myself if it were my business BUT ....they really screwed up on the implementation and the notice to members. As to Pearson...as I understand it...the loss of the archive was a human error that happened with no other brand and is indeed regrettable but people do make mistakes.

I hope that clarifies my opinions on this. Please advise if I have misunderstood your comment.
