Pearson 28-2 Diner Table and Aft Cabin Door


I am hopping someone can give some guidance on where I can find a suitable replacement for a Pearson 28-2 table and aft cabin door. I purchased o boat that did not come with either one. I will like to make the boat complete again but am having a difficult time tracking them down. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Re: Pearson 28-2 Diner Table and Aft Cabin Door

I also own that age Pearson and I do not think there's a chance of obtaining replacement parts unless you could find a totaled P28-2. You should join the Pearson Google group and ask these questions there.

You doubtlessly could have replacements fabricated by a woodworker but that would cost probably a 1/3 of what you paid for the boat...My advice is to put a hanging curtain in for the aft cabin and find a replacement table from an RV outlet. If your table legs are set up like mine, you can use this fitting upside down as your leg base on the traverses several regards...

The Pearson 28 was a popular boat with a lot of them being made. I have heard people mention on here that they have found parts for some of the more prolific boats by checking with large marinas that may have some junk boats rotting in the corner of their yard. shows that there was some form of a Pearson 28 made for 10 years.

It mentions that there were at least three different versions of the 28, mostly with exterior differences, but a few changes in the interior. I would guess that doors might have been the same. There might have been some versions with tables that folded down from the bulkhead and others with tables mounted up from the cabin sole.

If you spend any time in New England or on the northeast coast you could probably find some abandoned boats like yours in some of the larger marinas and boat yards. You might even be able to find what you're looking for with a number of phone calls.

I would bet that you could find a number of those boats sitting in yards anywhere from Portsmouth Rhode Island, North to Nova Scotia, and from Portsmouth South to the Carolinas.

A few people on here have posted photos of their project rebuilding their own table.

When I started to enter the search term, "Pearson 28" to find out more about them the parts supplier, listed below, came up as a supplier of parts for Pearson boats. He has replacement ports, sliding hatch covers, vee-berth hatches, rub rails, and handrails for Pearsons of all sizes. He is not too far from where the boats were made and sounds like he could be a good source of information.

I used to own a 28-2, and it was quite different than the 28--the cabin especially. I think ~350 28-2s were made. That's too bad about the table because it was a nice one, a slightly V-shaped drop leaf that went around the compression post.
