I am interested in buying a Pearson 530. What can anyone tell me about the boat, What they like what they don't. How does she sail? what's the real draft on the boat?

We have an SNer here 'capta' (as opposed to CaptJ) ;) who cruises/lives aboard a P530. I expect he'll be along shortly. If not, get your post count up to a point where you could PM him.
