couple of questions

we sail an older (73) Pearson 33 and love her. My family had a Pearson Vanguar when I was a teenagerm and while prettier, I think the Shaw designed P-33 is a better sailer.

Head Problems

It might be tme to stop throwing good $ after bad. That $1800 + would have been a great start to a new diesel. $1800 is a huge chunk, but it won''t be the last.

1970-75 Pearson 33 or 1970 Columbia 36

Barnaby,
We sail a ''73 P-33. This is a boat that has been in my family many years. In fact we had ''66 Vanguard when I was a teenager (50 next month)

We think the P-33 is a great sailing boat....
