Just an update guys...
We took the dive and bought Whisper! (Whisper is not the one at Captains Cove) She's a 92 Legend 35.5 with a Yanmar rebuilt in 2009. After looking at many boats in this size...

Re: 1st time buyer looking for guidance

I suggest that a Pearson or c&c are both great sturdy boats and faster than most. Nothing wrong with a cat 30. You get a lot of features for your dollar with a hunter but give up something in build...

Re: Pearson 33 Rudder Shoe

Hi DGQ. Glad to hear that you've solved your rudder shoe problem. Hopefully you'll be out on the water soon. Is your P-33 powered by a Palmer 60 like mine? Just curious.

Re: Palmer P-60 Engine

You need a new lip seal. Search for "lip seal part number 11628" and you will find several suppliers. Best price I found was at seaboundsupply.com, less than $8. There is another, inner lip seal that...

I see you haven't had any takers, but hopefully you've had a private msg back or found some other way. I would be happy to take careful measurements and send them to you, but I don't plan to haul...

Re: Waterpump replacement - Pearson 26

Assuming your pump is electric then any fresh water pump will do. If it's just for the sink then get the smallest one you can. Even then you will get way more water than you need to just wash your...

Thanks PorFin.
