RHR...

Perfect! That concise, clear list lets me know exactly what I have to do; exactly what I was hoping to find. I can't thank you enough.

Re: Pearson 26 mast support

I believe it is a common problem on the P26 ( still miss mine, she was an incredable sailing boat).
Mine was replaced before I had bought her, I believe it was replaced with solid maple.
Enjoy your boat!

If you have not already found it there is a Plastic Classic Forum here Plastic Classic Forum ? Index page

A wealth of useful info including much on the early Pearsons.

Re: Pearson 26 mast support

Hi I am a new pearson 26 owner and in march I replaced my mast support beam. I too had the door replaced with a curtain but I did get the old solid door . I used solid white oak for the new support. The local marina when they rewired the mast drilled in to the side of the support and put a s/steel pipe in the support and the previous owner had injected large amounts of epoxy into the support to fix the rot.

Re: Pearson 26 mast support

Just following up. I've got the whole thing taken care of. New laminated white oak beam, new white oak compression strips, new russian birch plywood bulkheads (edges sealed w/ epoxy, faces with 7 coats of spar varnish), new mast wiring, holes through deck for wiring and mast step bolts lined w/ epoxy and chamfered, mast step plates sealed w/ 4200, mast completely rewired, gooseneck for the wires made from bicycle innertube attached to riser on mast step to prevent water from even reaching the wiring passageway in the step and deck... came out great! I have mast lights! A strong, solid support for the mast! An attractive cabin (well, at least this part!). Thanks to everyone for all of your great help. I've attached a pic. Still a few trim pieces I'd like to add to cover the small spaces between the bulkheads and compression posts, but not bad if I do say so myself.

Best to all..

Barry
