P35 Hull #29

I just pruchased Hull 29. I am very excited about getting her back to the shop and start working on her. In addition to lots of sanding I have a few projects that I will begin with. Maybe some of you can comment on these.

Rudder is loose on the rudder post. There is a crack on the top of the rudder. I am planning on removing the rudder and rebuilding. I have no Idea how I am going to do this.

The boat was dismasted. I have a replacment mast but my concern is the mast step. Looks like a two peice aluminum casting. Not sure how it is supposed to work. It may be fine but I may need to come up with a replacement.

More to come.

Congrats and welcome to the P35 club! You should let Harris at pearson35.com know that you have #29. I think it has been missing in the database and I'm sure he'd love to hear from you. From the hull number, you must have a 1968. You might want to email the other 1968 owners to share pictures of the step.

Congrats on your new boat! I'm sure you'll love her. We have a 1970 P35.

The mast step is pretty straightforward, assuming it was the original issue I'm familiar with.

The inner face of the mast butts up against the outer face of the aluminum oval of the step and is secured with screws. The step itself is through bolted to the compression post below decks.

Ours had an iron pipe threaded or possibly welded into its center to allow cable routing (VHF, lights) to pass below.

When I took the assembly apart I found a fair amount of oxidized aluminum between the step and the deck, and the deck itself looked slightly depressed from the weight of the rig's loading over the years. I built it back up with some fiberglass and epoxy and polished the step, then used an aluminum protectant (Nyalic) to keep it from oxidizing again. Finished up with a whole lot of 3M 4000UV sealant as a bedder.

I've never removed the rudder though. Good luck!
