Description: 1976 26 foot Pearson sailboat. Excellent condition, very clean. Priced to sell. Fun to sail, tiller-steering, great entry-level boat. Harken roller furling jib. Recent North sails. Dry boat: dry bilge, no drippy windows. Porta-pot (no smelly holding tanks and associated hoses).
Only freshwater sailed.
We are selling to move up to a bigger boat. My wife and I are life-long boaters; but my wife was more a passenger, while I raced sailboats since I was 12 years old. We were not sure if sailing was for our family, especially as we commute from Pittsburgh, but we love it! This has become our weekend retreat.
We bought "M&EM" four years ago. Of all the boats in the 5-10k range we looked at when we bought her, when boarding this boat we immediately knew it was the one. No "boat smell", the cushions inside are clean and fairly new, everything works. We looked all around Lake Erie; we bought M&EM in Canada and sailed her home to her new home in Erie. The previous owner had her since c. 2000, and the owner before that had her since new, all on Lake Erie.
Similar boats on Yachtworld.com are asking c. $7-8k, we are asking 6.5 as we prefer the boat go to a loving new owner vs. maximizing the price. (Yes there is a hurricane damaged P26 for $900... if you're handy go for it!)
Recent work - last three years:
1. Refinished teak hatch boards and handrails.
2. New bilge pump.
4. All new drain hoses and double hose-clamps.
5. Rebedded keel and replaced keel bolts.
6. Rebuilt transom (replaced rotting plywood core with new marine grade plywood bedded in West Systems epoxy).
7. New LED bow navigation lights.
8. Removed and rebidded windows with new gaskets (NOT just slap some caulk and hope for the best!)
9. Usual maintenance associated with sailboats - annual bottom paint with VC-17, cleaning, repaired mainsheet traveler, etc.!

Equipment: Mainsail, roller furling jib, cockpit cushions, interior cushions, lifejackets, fire extinguisher, flares, fenders, docklines, and other misc. equipment. Custom cover and frame, cradle.
