Season is very short... Then I'm going to Lake superior which stays on the cold side year round...But that's OK it's a beautiful place...

Plan is to haul up in spring (after hull painting) and have mast stepped once by crane at marina...They have a decent depth landing for largish boats and rent dry space for leaving on the trailer during the week...transient slips (for the weekend) are cheap and if you call ahead they will launch your boat for you and have it tied to pier.... same with pull and park if your coming in late and have to run..

End of season drop the mast and bring 'er home...

Re: Rub Rail Replacement

When it's time to replace my rub rail on my Morgan 33 OI, I will use 2-inch aluminum channel. The original is 2-inch hard rubber, which is brittle as glass at this point, and the cost of replacement parts alone is just under $3,000 ($30 per foot). The aluminum is a lot less expensive, wears better and doesn't get brittle.

Re: Rub Rail Replacement

Here's an example of an aluminum rubrail from Taco:

Re: Rub Rail Replacement

My old vessel, a Presto 36 has no rubrail but solid 6 inch wide bulwarks and a 2x8 covering board which is beginning to lose its finish. The covering board, the coach top handrails and woodwork associated with the companionway slides all need attention that I am reluctant the give. I intend to use a synthetic(plastic) material such as Plasteak or Plastic-tek to eliminate such tiresome refinishing jobs in the future. These materials are not cheap but the intense solar radiation here in GA. destroys exposed wood finishes post haste. I intend to purchase a "plug cutter" to produce my own fastener hiding, "wood" plugs. At one of our local marinas there is a boat with just this type of plastic wood replacement components and its looks are quite presentable.

Re: Rub Rail Replacement

Suggest you contact D&R Marine, Assonet Ma., -www.drmarine.com/ - ask for 'Rudy' for availability of replacement Pearson parts, etc. such as the rub rail for your P28-2
D&R bought up most all of Pearson's (& O'day's) remaining parts when they closed.
