When the P40 was introduced in 1977 it was loaded with features that broke the Pearson mold. The hull was balsa cored with a unique whale-shaped underbody and a deep centerboard. The hull shape, which was similar to Ted Hood's centerboarders of the time, was a risky departure from form for Pearson. The deck, however, is the P40's most recognizable feature. The P40 deck is genuinely flush. It looks racy and sexy. The short run, at least by Pearson standards, is a pity because Shaw, the designer and Pearson's general manager, lavished attention on the P40. Not only is the construction top rate, the interior finish is also better than most Pearson's.
"LaBuse" is a great example of an upgraded and well maintained Pearson P40. What a performer !
