P530 / Build Plans
« Last post by Mcomte on October 17, 2020, 10:32:30 AM »
Would love to have blueprints, build plans for Pearson 530 - something that shows plumbing design, electrical plans, etc. Anyone know how to obtain if there are still some documents still available? Thanks
I don't know the sizes needed, but unless you don't have the old stuff, you can send it in for duplication.

It's been five years now, but I used to replace life lines on my P323.  They also do standing rigging.  I calculated the cost per lineal foot, and for each piece of hardware, then added the labor for swaged fittings.  Sent in the originals to be sure I got an exact match, and it all came out perfectly done, at exactly the price I calculated based on the numbers on their web site.  The price was way less than half what my local marina wanted for the very same thing, including shipping the old stuff.

Good luck.

removing the stanchions isn't that bad EXCEPT for the bow ones...they're buried in the V-berth. I'm planning on either matching up the nuts and drilling if I can, or cutting out a square piece to access the 4 nuts, then cover the hole with some nice teak or such to hide them. There is a special tool I understand that Pearson used to hold the 4 nuts in place through the gap that does exist, but no luck finding one.  The Railings should be somewhat easy to remove, although I haven't had to do those yet. As for the rub rails, I'd love to replace mine too, but that's a job I just ignore right now. Again, My guy could make me up what I needed if I ever did replace them.  Just look for a local marine Stainless Steel guy.   We have 2 in Southern Ontario, one in Barrie and my guy near Niagara Falls.  I'm sure there are others around too, but these 2 deal in Marine SS repairs and new installs. Good Luck!!!
Standing & Running Rigging and Fitting/Tuning / P36 Standing Rigging Replacement
« Last post by ABardone on October 10, 2020, 12:08:55 PM »
Hi everyone, I own a 1973 Pearson P36 and am getting ready do replace all of the standing rigging and connections. A couple questions, first does anyone know the size of cable that should be used on the P36 and is it the same size throughout? Also, I am looking for a good affordable supplier to purchase from for this project, the internet is riddled with different companies but its so hard to determine which are legit and supply quality items at a fair price. Thanks for any response :)

Yes, the port side stanchions and the rear railings. I guess i need to find a fabricator. Thanks for your help. Also, any thoughts on replacing the rub rail?
Sounds fun and what a great memory to take away from this summer!

Only thing I can think of is to fill them with sand before bending.  This should keep them from buckling.
