Our previous boat was a Pearson 28. Tiller, a 10 hp single
cylinder Bukh raw water
, 204 phrf, 6 gallon tank if I remember correctly (filled it up once in 3 years, sailed on and off the mooring
every weekend April-October). Never did any repairs
on that boat; only thing that ever went wrong in the 3 years of ownership
was a battery
had to be replaced (so I added a little 15 watt solar
as a maintainer). Was bare bones but totally wonderful. Slow, a bit crowded, but was good to us.
