Pearson 1977 28'

Hello, I am new to the forum. Finally found out how to post!! !

I am looking over a 1977 Pearson 28' Hull #227. Is there a checklist? Because, I need one. Got the surveyor on the way. However, I am already knee deep in the bilge.

Thank you

Welcome aboard!! Your surveyor has a checklist, and hopefully knows his job! As with houses, his approval is only a small step...

Your personal checklist:
1 - Do you love this boat?
2 - Are you willing to throw all your money at her?
3 - Are you willing to devote massive amounts of time to her?
4 - Does your wife feel the same way?

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Chriss.

Good luck with your survey, and subsequent (hopefully) boat purchase.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
There are checklists in a book at the library but if your surveyor was already on the way and you were in the bilge then too late.
Good luck in the purchase of your "new" boat.
kind regards,
