Tank dimensions / specs on a 1983 Pearson 34
« on: December 04, 2023, 10:37:16 AM »
Hi - I doing some work for a client who has a 1983 (might be 1984) Pearson 34 who wants the water and holding tanks replaced.  The boat currently has soft-sided bags.  Does anyone happen to have specifications for these tanks (or do I need to build a mock-up with cardboard)?  Thanks in advance.

Try

http://triplemplastics.us/#&panel1-3.   

They've made many for Pearsons, and may know and have what you need. 

You may find some FYI info here as well :)

Strange yours has bags, and unless I'm mistaken, likely replaced original tanks at some point.  My 90 31-2 are all solid. 

This is what my holding tank's dimensions are, and looks like, but yours could be different.

Thanks.  Very helpful.  By the look of your drawing, looks like your holding tank might be under the v-berth?  The boat I am working on has the holding tank (bag) under the starboard settee along with one water tank.  Triple-M looks good, but I am in Canada so will likely look for someone local to save on the shipping, import duty and currency exchange.  But thanks again...

You're welcome, and yes, my holding tank is under the V-berth, and 2 water tanks in the cabin area.  I can't help with the exchange, but could provide assistance with bringing it up from the US, especially with the Toronto Boat Show in January if you can find what you need with Triple-M.  Being in Hamilton area myself, I'm not aware of anyone off hand to provide the tanks custom made, but if you do find someone, be sure to compare all final costs first :)     Could be very expensive here in the end????

Again, good luck!

Thanks.  Mass Precision Plastics in Whitby does custom marine tanks - so I think I'll source locally...I'll just need to make some mock-ups to get the correct dimensions.....thanks again for the help.

Once done, if you could post your results and costs, that would be great as this is a common subject on both the Pearson Forums :)   If it works out, would be nice to have a CDN source!

THANKS!!!

Will do.  I'll post the design specs on the forum.
