    Good evening everyone. Went for a sail on the Magothy yesterday on my Pearson 26 and the rudder sheared off at the hull line. I've had her for 2 years and in that time completed a week long cruise around the bay and, in early October, completed a Delmarva circumnavigation. Have also been out in...

    Came in from a sail this past Sunday and noticed that the lower end around the forestay turnbuckle is pretty well bent. Doesn't look like the upper is bent but the lower obviously is. Pictures here:

    I am having my keel bolts redone. The boat yard I am using could only get them by special order. So they ended up with 75 instead of just the 8 they needed. These are 5/8 galvanized bolts, washers, and nuts. They are looking for any other Pearson 26 owners who might need them. They are only...

    Does anyone have any photos, diagrams or suggestions on running the mainsheet and jib halyards from the mast to the cockpit on a P26? I'm not sure what the best arrangement of blocks, deck organizers or clutches would be to make singlehandling easier.

    I have a 1979-vintage Pearson 26. One of the previous owners fitted a Harken roller-furling rig to the headsail, which works pretty much OK. It's getting to be time to replace the sails. A quick Web search shows that there are several places that make replacement sails for this boat. I'd be...
