Re: Pearson 33-2 Wing Keel or Pearson 34 Centerboard

Can you give me some thoughts on the Fin vs Centerboarder.....performance, pointing....How does the C/B do in races......against what boats? Would love to get straight skinny on "versus fin".
You will be a great asset since you are have personal experience with exactly what I'm looking at and wondering about. How does she compare to C&C, Tartans, Sabres, if you race them?

The Chesapeake is unforgiving and would love a 5'11 fin, but it's almost not practical.

The pads Pearson used have been problematic I know....
33-2 looks family friendly, and how is she when sailing singlehandedly?

Any/all thoughts on 33-2 to other Pearson's would be appreciated. It's a boat that is definitely on the "short list"....I seem to keep coming back to it.

Thanks much,

Best Regards, Rob
