I see a lot of info for the 323, but not my Pearson 32.....
I got a key from a local machine shop. Get two, and clamp it in with a plastic wire tie.
Reference guide? The best place to start looking is to find folks with the same boat. Have you Googled your boat?
If so, and there isn't a group, then join the 323 group, or any other Pearson sailboat group, since most of the stuff and their "sources" will be very much alike.
While this forum is very helpful, many of the skippers are in larger boats and doing much more than coastal or local sailing.
forum, great folks there, too, and I send a lot of skippers there over here for the great discussions.
