New Member Introductions / Looking for new owner
« Last post by Ginger on May 23, 2024, 12:59:59 PM »
1967 Pearson Vanguard #291

This was my husband and his 2 brothers’ boat. She’s been shrink wrapped in outside storage since 9/21. The boys have all passed on and I need to find her a new owner. I know that the deck is soft - it was a project planned for 2022 and there may be an issue with the engine. Otherwise, she’s in great shape for her age. I would appreciate any advice anyone can give me as to its worth, how to sell or donate and anything else that might help me find Saoirse a new owner .

Exterior Finish and Fiberglass / 1980 365 damaged toe rail
« Last post by gbernier on May 19, 2024, 06:26:25 PM »
We are beginning a project to refinish the bright work on a 1980 365 hull number 6444926. There is damage to the toe rail on one side. I would like to find out if it is possible to obtain some dimensioned drawings of these components. Any help would be appreciated.

P34 / Pearson 34 rudder shoe / bushing
« Last post by Rol1964 on May 18, 2024, 03:07:16 PM »
Searching for original design info with respect to the rudder pin as it sits in the shoe...is there supposed to be a bushing or did the pin simply sit in the bore of the bronze shoe? Can't find this info anywhere...possible purchase of a P34. Maybe the rudder installation was the same as several other models...?  Thanks for any help.

Hi
I'm Gary and I bought a 365 sloop, Hull 381 called Toymaker in 2022.  I am hoping to have her out on the water after a 2 year delay.

Does anyone know what the original black finish on the fixed ports in the main cabin was? Hull 219  1979
Powder coated?  Enamel? etc.

General Discussion / Source for Pearson 28-2 rudder
« Last post by Bird Dog on April 27, 2024, 12:09:09 AM »
Dropped the rudder on my 1986 Pearson 28-2 to investigate a rust stain coming down from the top.  Boat yard is of the opinion water is getting in from the top seam.  I'm weighing all options; split it open to investigate and see if it is repairable (preferred), or worst case, buy a new rudder.  But looking at similar sized boats, a new rudder comes with some sticker shock!

Thing is, I have not found anyone who sells a rudder for a 28-2.  Any ideas if it is hull specific, or if the same rudder was used on other models?  Starting from scratch on this...  Any recommendations where to find one?

Thanks

Did you end up solving this issue?

I'm doing a P26 restoration and I'm seeking keel bolt advice.

I have a brand new North mainsail loose footed.

It is fantastic and if you haven't priced North lately you may be in for a pleasant surprise.
