Re: Pearson thread

I'm still trying to figure out the right place to post, but I'm not sure this is it. I have a pearson 33-2 and I'm trying to replace the OEM cove stripe. anybody have an idea where I can find it?

I don't think P30 rudders have any core, at least the one I tried to cut open appeared to be solid. I drilled holes and cut it with a circular saw and never hit anything but fiberglass.

Try Foss Foam, it may be where D R gets their rudders. $1900 really isn't a bad price, but you may find one a little cheaper. Used rudders come along too, there were over 1000 P30s made.

eherlihy Foss foam probably has the pattern for the Pearson 10m, and it will be cheaper than D n R.

Pearson 10M Spreaders

This past summer I bought a 1977 Pearson 10M. The rigger was concerned about the spreaders - they are secured with one screw to a housing on the mast. (Mine appear exactly the same as Dan Pfeiffer's.) I have a LOT of play in them, but it appears that they were designed this way.

They also are cutting into my halyards and the leading edge of the spreaders show extensive wear from the halyards grooving them for 35 years...

Can anyone weigh in on this?

I don't mind replacing the halyards, but it's not something I'd like to do every 5 years (if there's a design flaw) or I could put in a fairlead to keep the halyards off the spreaders, but I can just imagine the slapping that I couldn't then silence...I'm already wincing...

Thoughts?

Re: Pearson thread

own a 1976 Pearson 365 ketch rig. Absolutely love the thing. She's a heavy duty, thick hulled, easy sailing boat. Repowered with Perkins 4108 and all new standing rigging, wiring and plumbing. Fun for all to learn on. Nice for coastal cruising. 4.5" draft makes her good for FL coast. Pensacola bay is where we start our weekends.

For your Pearson fix I suggest joining the Pearson groups on Yahoo and Google. Those are the places the Pearsonites migrated to from the defunct Sailnet email list.

I owned a p-27 for 14 years, and now own a P-33-2. You're correct that Pearson made good sailing and tough boats.
I know I'm replying to a post that's about 5 years old, but I wanted to ask a bit more about the Yahoo/Google Pearson groups. I was a member of the Yahoo Pearson group, and DID find the folks there very helpful; I learned a lot from them. However, I cancelled my Yahoo account when Yahoo decided that my privacy was theirs to own and disrespect. Don't even ask me about Google. Sadly, without giving my soul to either of those two corporations, I can no longer communicate with those groups.

Does anyone know of any non-yahoo-or-google-based email lists for pearsons? Is there a way to circumvent the requirement of using a Yahoo or Google account for access to the existing groups?

Thanks..

Re: Pearson thread

We bought a 1966 Wanderer last October - hull#5. She is a great boat. Curious to know how many wanderers are still out there. We sail out of Point Lookout, MD.

Re: Pearson thread

The cruiser's forum website has an awesome Pearson board with just about any and all info one could need. Look under the heading "boatbuilders" then click "others", scroll down and find the Pearson thread.
