P27 / Re: Sea Strainer
« Last post by Last Resort on July 10, 2024, 12:51:26 PM »
If you have the original, probably brass, it's time to replace the whole unit and put in a modern one that you can see through and deal with much easier.  I changed mine a decade ago to a Vetus model

and love it.  There are many different manufacturers of this type of strainer.
It's an easy swap. Just match up the hose sizes to the model you need and all set.
P27 / Sea Strainer
« Last post by Oran on July 09, 2024, 08:34:23 AM »
I need to replace the gasket on the sea strainer for my Pearson 27. I am having a hard time identifying the part since the engine parts source says that this part was installed by the boat builder and my Pearson 27 manual does not show this as a part for the boat. Any clues out there?

P36 / Water Tank Questions
« Last post by latitude33 on July 07, 2024, 12:51:19 PM »
Hi. I have a 36-2 Hull#18. Was wondering if anyone had the forward and aft water tank capacity’s recorded?  I am looking at solving some balancing issues as the previous owner installed a large windless and stuffed 150’ of chain plus road in the anchor well which sits high. Needless to say I’m a little down in the bow when everything is full.

P34 / Re: Pearson 34 rudder shoe / bushing
« Last post by Rol1964 on June 29, 2024, 07:12:10 PM »
I see there have been over 1300 views but no replies so here is what I learned (in case any of the 1300 viewers are lurking, wondering...;-) : the shoe does not have a bushing. The pin from the rudder sits right in the bore. There should be about 1/4" clearance of the rudder above and below the tab of the shoe. Cheers, Rol1964.

I believe it's a scam myself, but likely the same as everyone else here, I didn't want to say anything in case it was for real and you missed it.   Again though, if it seems to good to be true, it "usually" is. 
Sails and Canvas / Re: loose or fixed foot

Here it is from Precision Sails.  Changed the tack angle from 88.6 to 85.4.  It will rase the boom 7".  At 88.6 it was 1" off the dodger.  I know it will stretch over the years, the one I have now have to put dodger down to be able to sail.

Engine and Drive Train / Re: Oil pressure
« Last post by Frayed Knot on June 24, 2024, 11:24:45 AM »
Just to let you know, I found the oil leak.  Eight years ago I put on an remote oil filter on to better access the filter.  The oil lines to the remote was against the bulkhead and finally rubbed a hole in it.  Replaced hoses and all is good.  No new motor needed.
