Re: Wood work, bottom paint, keel bolts on Pearson 26

Re: Recommend for trailer sailer with a real head?

Thanks for all the great responses. To answer an earlier post, we won't be moving the boat much or launching frequently. We'd still be at a slip through the season and then park it in the back yard...

Re: boarding ladder ideas 25 ft boat (Irwin 25)

Re: Replacement Screen for Pearson 27

We've been looking for a hatch screen replacement for a P26 for a while now and come up empty. We're looking at cutting the screen and leaving enough of an edge to try to weave in a replacement.
