Re: Compac 19 as a trailer sailor

I sail a Compac 19. I rig it once a season & then keep it on a mooring. I don't trust myself to raise the mast without using a gin pole. To get the gin pole set up, raise the mast, get the motor on...

Re: Washing sails

Sailmaker used round stick-on patches about 1" diameter that he put over the pinholes on my sail.

Re: Washing sails

My sailmaker told me to use oxiclean. I put some in a 5 gallon bucket with water, then dip my soft bristle brush in it and scrub the sail. I work on a tarp in my yard. I then string the sail between...

Re: Opinions on small dent in mast

Nothing like getting the opinion of a professional. I had discovered dents on my mast about a week after I purchased my boat (Compac 19). A previous owner had over-tightened the thru-mast bolt...

Re: Use of gasket sealant on outboard motor?

Reef - That's what I thought - but only after I started reassembly! I'm paranoid though that a bit of the sealant could be squeezed into the into the gear case, regardless of how thin I apply it to...

Use of gasket sealant on outboard motor?

Hi,
I'm in the process of replacing the impeller and associated gaskets on my Nissan 6hp 4-stroke. I separated the lower pump case from the gear case. Do I need to put some gasket sealant on the...

Re: Installing Wavefront Tiller Clutch

I have the WaveFront tiller clutch on my Com-Pac 19 & love it. Instead of a 'W' pattern, I just tie the control line to the existing cleats at the corners of the transom. Works fine.

Re: Cost of a pushpit?

Thanks for all the info. Put my mind at ease in that it does not appear to be a budget buster. On the other hand, the broker just let me know he has a conflict for our date next week so hopefully...

Cost of a pushpit?

I'm going to look at a Nonsuch 22 next week that has its lifelines terminating on the coaming at the aft corners of the transom. There are no stern rails. I'm thinking that boarding the boat from a...

Re: 6hp Nissan outboard leaks air into fuel line - End of the story

Finally got the thing fixed. The problem was the male connector on the fuel line at the engine. Replaced it and now the motor works fine. I could not find any cracks or imperfections on the old...

Re: Is 12 hp adequate hp on a P27?

Thanks for the heads up on the P30 but I'm still set on the 27.

Forgot to update you folks on the 27 we looked at in April. The boat was still on the hard. When we got there the owner said he...

Re: 6hp Nissan outboard leaks air into fuel line

I've made progress. I replaced the fuel hose, bulb and end connectors. That didn't work so I replaced the fuel line in the engine from the fuel hose connector to the fuel filter. Now I can idle...

Re: 6hp Nissan outboard leaks air into fuel line

Update on today's effort.
Tried to purchase a quick connector for the outboard end of the fuel supply hose at West Marine but they did not have anything that would work on a Nissan. While at the...

Re: 6hp Nissan outboard leaks air into fuel line

Capta:
I'll take off the tape & get some shellac. I guess the gas just dissolves the tape?
I replaced the fuel lines on either side of the bulb. The next thing I'm going to do is replace the quick...

Re: 6hp Nissan outboard leaks air into fuel line

Rich:
I'll check the tank vent but I don't suspect it is the problem. My external tank has a knob on the top of the filler cap and I believe that when loosened, it directly allows air to enter the...

6hp Nissan outboard leaks air into fuel line

I have a 4 stroke, 6hp Nissan outboard that stalls out at low RPMs. The cause is an air bubble that grows within the fuel filter. When the bubble gets so large that it only touches the bottom of the...

Re: Looking for P27. Are there other email lists for Pearson?

Didn't realize that the seats were the same. I still would like to go with the 27 since I'd like the shallower draft. Thanks for information though.

Re: Looking for P27. Are there other email lists for Pearson?

Hello Sliclady, Unfortunately you are just too far away for me to consider it.
Alex - The P27 is the right sized boat for me. Also, the cockpit seating is very ergonomically designed/shaped and...

Re: Is 12 hp adequate hp on a P27?

OK. I won't shy away from the 12 - now just need the opportunity to see the boat. The present owner may not be able to show it to me until after another potential buyer sees it. I'll let you know... ...

Re: Is 12 hp adequate hp on a P27?

Apparently the engine is a Universal 12 but only generates 10 hp. Don't really understand that but have seen references to that on-line and also spoke with a prior Pearson salesman who said the same...

Re: Looking for P27. Are there other email lists for Pearson?

I'd look at the one in Pultneyville if getting it back here wouldn't be such a hassle. As for the other boat - what can you say?

Re: Looking for P27. Are there other email lists for Pearson?

If I could convince my marina that the boat was only 27 feet long, then I'd be interested. Thanks for the offer though :)

Hi All,
About 10 years ago I was looking for a Pearson 27. Got waylaid by a Nonsuch 26 and Compac 19. Now I'm again looking for a Pearson 27. Do you know of any boats out there? Also, are there...
