Update: She still hasn't sold. I took her off the market when I had to focus on my dad for a few weeks. However, I made a really great purchase. I got Cushions. Double thick memory foam and comfortable. I also acquired a spin pole and two spinnakers, one in a sock, that could be negotiated as part of the deal.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to face the facts that my beloved Pequod have to part ways. She is not the prettiest Pearson 30, but she is rock solid. When they first started making them, Pearson over engineered the P30. She needs the TLC and cosmetics finished I have no time to get to. Not uncomfortable by a long shot. But I also have friends with newer P30s that show me cushions and new cubby wood can make it beautiful. Not expensive, but time consuming. And TIME is something I don't have.
My Father, stone cold stubborn ex Marine, has come down with Temporal lob Dementia. It doesn't take ones memories or awareness, it doesn't make you forget how to keep yourself fed and clothed. rather ability to reason, speak what is on your mind, and thus puts him at risk to be alone in the world. Needless to say, keeping him out of a home has become a full time job, along with my full time job. I don't have time for the improvements and the sailing I have enjoyed for the past decade. 7 of them years with Pequod. All of her life spent on Lake Erie. Currently located in Lorain, Ohio just west of Cleveland.$5,500 is negotiable. If you want to pay the $445 membership fee and want the dock for 2020, I will throw that in.
She has not been idle and not been uncared for. She can be the fastest boat in a fleet if you can get the crew to stop the drinking belly aching. If you are on Facebook search "sailing with Dwight" and see more.
VC 17 paints her bottom every season. We stripped her and put a barrier coat 7 years ago. Other than that, she comes with everything you would expect from a Person 30.
