Re: Pearson 33-2 Wing Keel or Pearson 34 Centerboard
I have a P33-2 with the fin on the Chesapeake. Except for being stuck in my slip in the unusual low tide on Memorial weekend this year, I have honestly never regretted getting the deeper draft, but I understand I am in the minority on this. Can't think of very many places I have felt excluded from, and I certainly haven't run out of places to explore yet. There are at least 2 centerboard P33-2s in our marina, one of which I have sailed, but I have never had the chance to directly compare speed or pointing. PM me if you are interested in sailing mine. And I will pass your contact info to the owner of one of the centerboarders if you like. Real nice helpful guy, so he might be willing to do some direct comparison with us.
