Re: Pearson 33 Rudder Shoe

My boat is number 184 as mentioned and the registration says 1972 but my documentation says 1973. I don't know what year my boat is! Yours is probably 1971 or 2. Odd, if your boat was built late in 1971, then mine was built early in 1972 so the confusion about the date on the documentation is even stranger.
I found hull # 188 down in Rhode Island, drove down there and made a mold of his rudder shoe, then made a fiberglass part out of the mold and took it to a foundry. Just picked up the Silicon Bronze part this AM and now off to the metal shop for the final machining and then fitting it back on my boat. Almost there. Thanks for the offer of help. If you ever lose yours by some incredibly strange set of coincidences, I have a fiberglass one to use to make a new one. Probably the only one in existence.
