Just bought a 365 ketch. She will stay in the Keys while I go back and forth

Currently own a Pearson Ariel 25 build in 1964. Boat purchased by partnership (Knot a Clew, LLC) in August 2007 after the previous boat, a Cal 25 bearing the name of the LLC, was lost in Katrina. The Cal 25 was previously know as Bon Temp Roule. Anyone wondering what happened to her she went down in her slip at South Shore Harbor after being crushed along her center line. She was recovered in pieces and placed on a salvage barge.

Hello, I have a 1974 Pearson 10 meter I sail out of Salem, Mass. I previously had a Pearson 30, but with a growing family (wife and 3 kids) I needed something a little biigger. I am thrilled with the boat. We do mostly weekend trips during the summer months, and looking forward to next summer where we plan to go to the cape, and maybe a trip to Maine late in the season. We would love to find other people with children who enjoy sailing the north shore since the kids are always happie rwith other children are around to play with. My kids are 2 boys, and a girl, ages 14, 11, and 10. Drop me a line sometime!

I'm just logging in.

I have a Pearson 32 and sail the Great Lakes. I love my boat, with one exception. I too big for the area fwd of the mast. Difficulty shuting the head door, and it's difficult to get in/out of the V berth at 6' 1", 230 lbs.

It's great for coastal cruising, but for me, not a live aboard, full time boat. And I'm without a first mate, I can't forsee 2 people living comfortably aboard for an extended period.

Handling wise, she's sweet.

I haven't been in at Ponce. I understand that the inlet itself is pretty straightforward, just respect the buoys. Once inside, there is apparently a lot of shifting shoals. If you've been there. I would appreciate any info you can share. I was once on the ICW a bit north of Ponce inlet--very skinny in places. The boat in front of us went aground.

We're planning to take Now or Never! (P323) to the Bahamas at about the same time. We'll probably head down the coast from Brunswick, GA to Fernandina Beach, FL, then St Augustine FL, then Ft Pierce, then Ft Lauderdale and finally Miami. We'll cross from there to Bimini as the weather permits. Last time we did it, we crossed in early Jan.

I am a new owner as of this past month of a 1976 30 ft Pearson. I live in eastern NC and would also like to make it after Christmas to Florida and the Bahamas. Right now it is in the Washington NC boatyard getting bottom painted and electronics installed. (also new name painted on of course.) I would love to meet others planning to do the same in the new year.

We have a Pearson 365 ketch, named Talisman, that we bought a year ago. We've been working on it as the previous owner just lived aboard at the marina. He added some good things and some not. Right now Mike is sawing out the 30-yr. old fuel tank and is trying to replace it with 2 smaller tanks. We haven't done much coastal cruising but hope to make it to southern FL sometime soon and then on to the Bahamas. What cruising we've done we've truly enjoyed and look forward to a more intense set of offshore experiences. Have really liked the accounts re s/v Veranada! Will be looking at your other sites. Glad to become part of the group. Mike and Gina

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
