Thumbs up Pearson 30 Owners' Groups?


I just bought a 1978 Pearson 30 and am looking for owners' organizations.

The boat will be in Lake Erie, Toledo area.

Re: Pearson 30 Owners' Groups?

Have a P-30, spent 16 yrs on the hard. My wife and I revived her 4 yrs ago. Been sailing around the Delaware bay and boat seems to handle any weather and seas just fine. We've made a lot of changes to her over the last 4 yrs. Some include new paint top side, a lot of new wiring, aluminum spreaders, refinished all the exterior teak, re-designed and installed new galley, a new rebuilt Atomic 4 from Moyer Marine and most recently replaced bushings on rudder and removed those old leaky fixed cabin ports and replaced with 4 opening ports. This change has made the cabin much more comfortable in the warmer weather. I've heard from a few boats in the Cheseapeake and a few others scattered around. Seems like there still are a few P-30's around and doing well.

You might check at the Plastic Classic group for Pearson 30 owners, or post on the plastic classic thread for a lead:

Re: Pearson 30 Owners' Groups?

I was the webmaster for the Chesapeake Bay Pearson 30 Association - now defunct. I do not know of any other P30 groups. You might try the Pearson Sailing Association. I owned the mighty 1978 P30 Severn Run.
