And so it begins… I was about 90% finished with restoring a Pearson 28 and I wasn’t really looking for another project boat. The P28 was my first Pearson and I had come to have great admiration for the Pearson brand. So now 2 years after our first meeting when I was asked if I wanted to look at a Pearson 323 I thought, sure, I love sailboats and I’m starting to like Pearson’s a lot.

It was then that she drew me in… God help me.
