Re: Yanmar 2GM20F mixing elbow Pearson 31-2

I know what you mean regarding the Yanmar pricing on a replacement exhaust elbow. That is why we reconditioned (chiseled) the old elbow and reinstalled it. I'll take a closer look at your set up....

Re: Yanmar 2GM20F mixing elbow Pearson 31-2

Holy Crap, your a mad man.:) I like it, but I would be worried about water flowing back into the exhaust manifold when the engine is turning over but not firing, i.e. not exhaust pressure. Is there...

Re: Yanmar 2GM20F mixing elbow Pearson 31-2

Update: We ended up re-using the joint (I couldn't unscrew it anyway) and the clogged elbow, after chiseling away the blockage. We used non-permanent permatex (I think that is the blue as opposed to...

Re: Accessing waste pipe

I found what looks like the same corrugated pipe installed in the galley sink drain on our p31-2. It was clamped to a short section of PVC pipe which was screwed into the seacock. Hard to believe.

Re: Any 88' Pearson 31-2 Owners in the house?

The pump out for the ice box is the cylindrical pump on the galley sink. Takes 10 or 20 vigorous pumps before it starts to draw.

Re: Toe rail refinish/rebed 1987 pearson

Yes, I am almost finished replacing the core under the anchor cleats. I discovered that the deck is cored under the toe rails. However, it looks like plywood and it may be epoxied. Not sure.

I...

Re: P31-2 Plywood In Cored Deck?

Thanks for the info. I asked around and it seems the consensus is that many builders used plywood in high stress areas. It's been suggested that I replace the plywood with coosa board, as opposed to...

P31-2 Plywood In Cored Deck?

We cut open the deck under the anchor cleat to investigate high moisture readings and to our surprise found plywood. There was lots of moisture but no delamination.

Two notes.

1. If Pearson...

Re: Toe rail refinish/rebed 1987 pearson

Thanks for the info, Dave. The original manual given to us by the previous owner contained plans/drawings for the P33-2, so I think your right about the designs being the same. I did notice a bump up...

Re: Toe rail refinish/rebed 1987 pearson

Thanks for the lead, faster. I spent so many hours googling for core repairs that I didn't think to google my actual question. I'll give it another shot tomorrow, but if anyone has direct knowledge,...

Toe rail refinish/rebed 1987 pearson

The deck on a Pearson 31-2 is cored. Does that core extend under the toe rails? I am wondering if I should include them in my re-bedding project this spring.

I'm doing the bow cleats and...

Re: Fixed port light seal replacement

Thanks for the heads up, Dalober. I checked the google, and you are right. I guess the place we bought the glass from misled us. It's laminated though, which will reduce the risks if the glass is...

Re: seacock location

Re: seacock location

I agree with Jim. When I bought my P31-2 last year it came with all the original diagrams, but there were discrepancies in the locations for several items including through hulls. Better to spend a...

Re: Pearson 31-2 worthwhile upgrades

I like the idea of the folding wheel in our P31-2 but it's not in the budget right now. However, I am interested in how you installed the perch seats. Can you post a picture?

Re: Yanmar 2GM20F mixing elbow Pearson 31-2

The elbows do look aluminum in the picture, but by weight, they're definitely steal. The joint is stainless, I think.

The parts shop offered to use an acetylene torch when we bring it in next...

Re: Yanmar 2GM20F mixing elbow Pearson 31-2

Thanks, I'll look into alternative sealants. I was thinking that the exhaust would be cool enough by then, but now that you mention it, the joint is upstream of the water port in the mixing elbow.

Yanmar 2GM20F mixing elbow Pearson 31-2

The exhaust port in the mixing elbow of our Yanmar 2GM20F was 99% blocked, yet the engine was still running relatively well. She was blowing a little smoke, and this past spring the mechanic said...

I sailed out of Boston for a number of years and consider it my home port, but Salem has an abundance of moorings at a somewhat reasonable price, so I ended up there last year.

Re: Cal 33-2 Tender?

Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't consider calling any cruising sailboat tender. If you reef and furl according to the conditions, then you can sail comfortably in anything up to 25 knots. And if...
