Re: SmartPilot X-5 Wheel Drive Unit "Upgrades"?

I've got an x5 wheel pilot on our Pearson 34. We don't rely on it for long periods of time or if the weather is up. On the last day of the season last year, ours gave up. Suddenly made an awful...

ASA-105 to USCG 6-pack

Hello there,

In December, I did the ASA-105 navigation class and I found it challenging but very well done and very helpful. I did very well on the final exam. At the same time, I signed up to...

Thanks for all the help folks. Makes perfect sense now. I just never noticed the cam before in other boats. Then again, the only time I saw inside a pump was during a class with a bunch of other...

We saw it too as we were heading out from Winthrop Harbor. I took some pics too. The boat was totally in flames when we went by. It did look like it was on the rocks at nix's mate. Picasa Web...

Help to find/build/buy emergency tiller for P34

Hello Sailnet,

Our new-to-us Pearson 34 purchased over the winter came with no Emergency Tiller. We're having a hell of a time finding one or even the drawings for one. We've been working with a...

Actually the pulpit has been expertly reworked and it now fits the boat much better. This is the last (maybe only) P34 built by Bristol Yachts for "Cal-Pearson" in 1997 (hull 61). The boat was...

Anchor woes

Hello,

Our new-to-us Pearson 34 came with a very nice 35 lb CQR. The bow roller they installed seems comically small for the anchor and it really wants to just fall off the boat. The previous...

Transmission coupling

Hello,

We sailed our new (to us) Pearson 34 home from Newport RI to Boston MA over the last few days. This is our first boat. Our one heartrate-raising moment was finding we had no forward or...

I'm a big fan of Matt LeDuc at Fleet Yacht Sales in Bristol RI. He was our broker when we bought our boat.

We were surprised too. But the closer we looked, the more we saw. While it sat in the yard unfinished, it got some rainwater damage. Most of that was repaired - cosmetically. The real issue (I...

I think we might have the last Cal-Pearson?

My girlfriend and I bought a Cal-Pearson 34 in Bristol, RI. This Pearson was actually unfinished when the ill-fated Cal-Pearson corporation ceased operations. Bristol Marine acquired the property...
