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

@Dave: great, thanks. I'm leery too of CBs, but @David, I've heard many do sail and really never put the board down.
I'm going to have to get used to: 1.Wheel (but easier for the Admiral),2.Everything basically out of reach, and I'm a "constant tinkerer" with main and jib/genoa.....I love to actively see improvement, so I don't passively sail. Not a racer yet, but want to start when the 4 year old is a bit older, and I: 1. have more time (yeah, sure!), and 2. Can have her old enough to be on the boat with me - with me mostly singlehanding........but her enjoying and learning.
I've gotten some feedback on Wings and the grounding, according to many is "overrated"......but, bottom line is, if you do really plow in, call Sea Tow!.....So, don't plow in!
Read that Bill Shaw himself noted that he liked CBs more than Wings and went to them towards the end to try to keep Pearson competitive because so many people wanted both Shallower and "modern".....and not the perceived trouble that CBs bring (maintenance, bumping noises......again, perception).
@David
Since you have a P35 with CB, and I'm considering a P34 with CB as an option too, please share your thoughts on the maintenance and "noise" of the CB......Since Pearsons are so well built for a Production boat, seems that they would have a solid CB too.......is that the case?
Thanks, this is really helping

All,
Anyone have the PHRF for the Pearson 33-2 with the Wing Keel. NE PHRF lists as follows, and in my Google searches, don't find any 33-2 WK PHRF numbers.
Thanks!
