P33 / Re: New Owner of a 1987 P33-SL (swing keel)
« Last post by Gjward63 on September 25, 2023, 01:27:50 PM »
I have the same questions about the swing keel, the cable and rope.

I was going to attach a thin tracer string at the bitter end of the keel line, pull in through.  I would then record the measurements on the new line and cable; attach the tracer string to the cable and pull it toward the keel, once through, attached the cable to the keel.  cut-off the excessive line in the cockpit.

My concerns are maintenance on the blocks at the various 90's which the cable goes through?

P33 / Shifter Cable

1986 Pearson 33-2, Shifter cable Replacement
This is a fairly easy repair, use a tracer string when pulling out the old cable and installing the new cable, I used an 1/8" diameter string tied to the old cable, then re-tied to the new cable.....this helps guide the new cable without tangling on the steering chains and other wires that were inside the pedestal.

I didn't know what size length of cable I needed, therefore, I bought a few various length cables, the existing old cable measured 16', I bought/installed a 17' foot cable.  There was plenty of room the "loose" the extra 12". Installing a cable 16' or 17' foot long cable works perfectly A 15' foot cable might have been too short, an 18' foot cable could possibly fit.  Very little adjustment was needed, connect the both ends, manually put transmission in neutral, at the pedestal move the lever to the neutral position THEN tighten down the linkage going to the shifter lever.

While you are there: clean and lube the steering chains, lube steering bearings at the pedestal, below deck check/adjust tension on steering cable going to the rudder.  Put everything else back together, go sailing!

Is there a zink on the shaft of a P303 1983
When I hauled out there was no room for a zink on the prop shaft. I put one at the end of the shaft, conical shape.
Was thinking I should order a longer prop shaft.
Let me know
Thanks in advance
New Member Introductions / Alberg 35 Owner Introduction
« Last post by TFaste on August 27, 2023, 02:25:30 AM »
Hi All,

I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I've owned the Alberg 35 hull number #122 for about seven years now. We sail in the San Juan Islands of Washington State.

Hi All,
I'm looking to purchase a copy of the add featured on this website in the Alberg 35 Section titled "Let's Clear the Air: Pearson Yachts win races, too!" OR if someone has a copy of the add and would be willing to scan it at high resolution, that would work as well.

Thanks for any help tracking one down.
