Love my Pearson 31-2 - Anyone have any good modifications to share?
« on: April 03, 2016, 07:59:10 am »
Hey All,

Just wondering if anyone has done anything cool to modify their 31-2? I am working on lots of cosmetic stuff including interior and exterior teak finishing, LED lighting bulb upgrades, new sanitation hoses, electronics installation like autopilot, wind/depth/temp gauges and much more.

Thanks,

Hi Jordan,

I just finished replacing sanitation hoses and installing an electric toilet on my P31-2. Not a fun job, but my wife likes the upgrade. I am sure we must have seen each other out on the Bay at one time or another. I sail out of Galesville. You'll recognize me by my hull number on the main -163.

Cheers,

I enjoy owning "Just Add Water" Thank you, Jeff. What a great boat. We need to go out with Bruce before he splits town for Wisconsin.

I've done so many....replaced teak toe rails with PlasTeak, led lighting, mechanical Garmin Autopilot (quiet), solar panel, cooler conversion to frig-o-boat, new solid SS legs for table, and more I can't think of right now, but one of the first mods I did was replace my safety lines and in doing so I installed the same gate on the PORT side where it should've been in the first place.  I really didn't like people going through my cockpit to fill the diesel :(
