    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows about this boat. How seaworthy is it? And would anyone take it around the world? Anyone's help is appreciated.

    Don't know the boat from personal experience but judging by the numbers it appears to be a heavy lay-up of glass at least since 17,156 lbs listed is fairly heavy displacement for the 36-foot range. Pearsons have a pretty good rep overall but there were a few years where there was some issues but can't recall what they were or which years...late 70's...early 80's? I'd get a qualified surveyor involved if it's a boat you might take bluewater no matter what the make or model if your not highly experienced in what problems to look for......
