Re: Cape Dory 36' vs Pearson 367

I own a 1982 CD36....not for very long but she's mine and I just sailed her from Pensacola to Corpus Christi. There is nothing about this boat I don't like. She's beautiful, extremely well constructed and performed admirably in 25kt winds and 8' seas. Perfectly sized for my wife and I and capable of 4 more for a short weekend. The bath is tight but functional. The full keel design is extremely durable and thoroughly protects the rudder and propeller. The engine compartment is tight but everything is easy to get to...if you're of average girth. I'm 6'1" and 190lbs and can get to everything.
Nothing on this boat is poorly constructed and everything I've read supports that this is a true seaworthy boat. There are faster, roomier and more modern designs, but when the clouds close in and the wind picks up and there's no land to hide behind...this is the boat I'd want to trust my family in.

Re: Cape Dory 36' vs Pearson 367

Hi ! How about the mainsheet traveler ? On the Cape Dory it's on the roof, while on your Pearson 367 it's in the cockpit ! Is it in your way sometime ?
Cheers ! I like the look of both !
Do you have a windlass ? How's your anchoring gear working ?

Grats! CD has made some well constructed boats. Isn't it hard to float her in Colorado?

I like the location of the traveler on the roof of the CD36. It's out of the way but easily reachable. I re packed the bearings underway after sparks shot out after a couple of really hard jibs / gybes. My windlass works excellent so far, it's an Armstrong unit 51 years old. Currently I'm looking and comparing motorized ones.

Hi ! I'm also looking for a windlass. I'd like to know you points of view on horizontal vs vertical windlass & which one you'll choose in the end.
