Potential Pearson 303 purchase

Hello, Does anyone have advice this is my first sailboat purchase. I've been focusing on Pearson 31-2 1986 really like the layout. However many of them I've seen have wet decks major softness. I've found a 303 which really looks clean with many upgrades. Any thoughts?

Thanks
Alex

Re: Potential Pearson 303 purchase

My first boat was a 1983 Pearson 303 that I bought in 2006 and kept for 6 years; I don't regret the purchase at all and kinda wish I had her back. The 31-2 is a more modern design with maybe a better layout and a bit faster, but the 303 is very roomy and while not fast quite easy to sail.

I think it's a great first boat; good quality with decent resale, forgiving sailor, simple systems, good ergonomics. . .

PM me if you have specific questions.
