line routing and placement on 1973 pearson 26footer

I just purchased a 1973 26 foot pearson and in desperate need on how to properly route the lines from the bow and the mast to the cockpit of the boat. There are several nylon lines going up and down the mast as well as a red and blue line on both sides of the mast that go to the top and back again to the bottom. The mast is currently unstepped. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can some information on this problem. Thanks and please send replies to tygershark73@aol.com

First of all, all of the lines on the mast should all be dacron and should not be nylon. Nylon is too stretchy for running rigging.

Pearson 26''s were pretty simply rigged. Most (if not all) Pearson 26''s had their halyards run to winches and cleats rather than being lead back to the cockpit. Because of the cabin design, it would be difficult to run the halyards aft. Depending on whether the boat was rigged for spinacker or not you should have one line that exits the aft side of the mast which is the main halyard and one line that exits the front of the mast just below the forestay which is the jib halyard. Then there might be a second halyard that runs through a block mounted forward and above the forestay which is the Spinnaker Halyard. And lastly there might be a line that runs through a block mounted on the front of the mast above the spreaders which is the spinnaker pole lift.

If that is all Greek to you I suggest that you pick up a basic sailing book that will show you what each of these lines do and how to rig them.

Respectfully,
Jeff

Actually after replying to your post I took a look at Yachtworld and there was a Pearson 26 with its lines led aft. Here is a link to the ad:

I don''t recognize your name from the Pearson email list on Sailnet, but if you haven''t already, you need to ask your question there. A short cut is to email a fellow named Dan Pfeiffer at dan@pfeiffer.net, who is the dean of all things P-26. Or check out Dan''s Pearson website at www.pearsoninfo.net. He has a whole section devoted to the P-26, a boat he used to own until he just bought a Pearson 10M. As I have stated before, if it concerns Pearsons and isn''t on Dan''s site, it isn''t worth knowing.
