I was very close to buying a 367 once but when I saw a 424 it was no contest.

Re: Failed survey but still interested...

I will need to do a Visa run every 90 days. It's not a big deal. I am headed home in a few days. I brought some gear down in case I stayed. I'll return in a few weeks with the new chartplotter so I won't have to pay import duties. I think there is a 20% customs duty if I have it shipped. I just need to get my ducks lined up as far as what I want to bring.

Re: Failed survey but still interested...

The good news

I can unsubscribe from steadys under $30k thread.
I can stop looking at boat porn.

Bad news
Trying to find a 12 step program so I can stop looking at boat porn.
I'm going to be bothering you guys with a lot more with questions.


Thanks everyone!

I've tried to get on the pearson365 site and it has said that registration is currently disabled. I can still view posts though.
Yes, the brochure links confirm that.

Maybe send SV Third Day a PM re registration?

He might be able to help.

Re: Failed survey but still interested...

MY RESPONSES IN CAPS FOR CLARITY, I AM NOT SHOUTING

Yesterday it failed survey:
SKYLARK A 1973 PEARSON 36-1 ALSO FAILED HER SURVEY, BUT I CHOSE TO GIVE HER A COMPLETE RENOVATION
Rigging needs to be replaced. $6000
DEFENDER MARINE CAN DO BETTER, IF YOU SWAGE THE TOP FITTINGS AND USE STA-LOK FITTINGS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE STAYS.

A couple fuel leaks
HOSES PROBABLY ALL NEED REPLACING DUE TO AGE

Water ingress through a chainplate (assume it can be rebedded during rigging)
OF COURSE THIS IS A REGULAR MAINTENANCE JOB THAT NEVER GETS DONE. THE CHAINPLATE LEAKS ON SKYLARK WERE SO BAD THAT THE VENEER HULL LINER HAD TO BE TOTALLY REPLACE. THE PLYWOOD CORE OF THE KNEES WAS WET ALL AROUND, BUT THE FIBERGLASS IS SO THICK IN THE KNEES THAT IT WAS ONLY GIVING SHAPE, NOT STRENGTH. I DRIED OUT THE KNEES AFTER REMOVING AND INSPECTING THE CHAINPLATES

bonding system not functional
SO HOOK IT UP AGAIN...OR NOT. SOME SAY BONDING IS NOT A GOOD IDEA ANYWAY

Shaft drive needs alignment
SO WHAT? THIS IS NO BIG DEAL AND SHOULD BE PART OF ANNUAL OR BI-ANNUAL MAINTENANCE

Water leak through the quadrant steering
THE FLAX PACKING JUST NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, THAT'S ALL. IT DOESN'T LAST 40 YEARS...

Varnish is too far gone. It needs to be taken back to the wood. $1000
SO? VARNISH...I WANT TO LAUGH. THE SILICONE USED TO BED MY TOERAIL WAS OVER 30 YEAR OLD AND ALLOWD THE 100 WOOD SCREWS USED TO FIX THE TOERAIL TO THE DECK WERE ALL LEAKING ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE ATLANTIC. I HAD NEW TEAK MILLED A BIT HIGHER AND REBEDDED WITH SIKAFLEX AND NUTS AND BOLTS!!! NOW THERE ARE NO LEAKS AT ALL.


Needs a new bimini $1000
SO?

Radar not functioning
THE NEW ELECTRONICS ARE SO MUCH MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT AND EASY TO OPERATE THAT YOU SHOULD REPLACE ALL OF THEM.

Questionable
chartplotter works but shows discoloration
READ ABOVE

halfway installed watermarker
SO FINISH IT...

Sails have been left on when absent. There is a light green moss on the headsail and most halyards.

REPLACE ALL...
Water left in tanks when absent.
CAN BE CLEANED...

This is starting to look pretty grim.
IT IS A RENOVATION PROJECT AND AS SUCH IS BASICALLY OVERPRICED. OFFER 10K LESS AND GET ON WITH IT.

Surveyor said I'd spend $15k to get it up to snuff. He said normally a boat this size and this price it would be a major project. He says that isn't the case for this boat so he kinda gave me the thumbs up if I want to spend the money.

Really it seems the last owner was delinquent (4years)
SO WAS MY PO. HE NEVER EVEN MOVED THE BOAT, JUST USED IT AS A WEEKEND GETAWAY

I also paid for haul out. The hull showed no osmosis.
The engine fired right up and had some smoke. I'm having an engine survey done tomorrow.

Wondering if I should continue with purchase. Not looking for a yes or no but things I should consider.[/QUOTE]
THESE PEARSONS ARE GREAT BOATS, MOST OF THE MATERIALS USED ON THE BASIC CONSTRUCTION WERE EXCELLENT QUALITY. AS I WROTE, MY BOAT ALSO FAILED THE SURVEY, BUT I HAVE A PEARSON 26 AND KNOW THE BASIC QUALITY AND SPEED ARE VERY GOOD.

I CHOSE TO TO A 10 YEAR OVERHAUL, EVEN REPLACING THE OLD TREADMASTER DECKING. BASICALLY REPLACED EVERYTHING BUT THE NEW YANMAR ENGINE THAT THE PO HAD INSTALLED.

I HAVE WRITTEN A SMALL BOOK ABOUT MY EBAY PURCHASE, BASIC RENOVATION, CROSSING THE ATLANTIC AND GETTING THE BOAT LEGAL IN THE EU.

ON AMAZON...ISBN 978-0-9889-2348-5 ALSO AVAILABLE AS AN E-BOOK

BASICALLY, DO YOU WANT TO KEEP THIS BOAT? IF SO, SPEND THE TIME AND MONEY TO BRING IT BACK TO LIKE-NEW CONDITION. MAY TAKE SOME TIME, BUT THE BOAT IS IN A GOOD PLACE TO GET A LOT OF THIS WORK DONE.

GOOD LUCK

If ypu can get the vessel for a price you are happy to pay AND you're prepared to do the work then the choice is yours.

Re: Failed survey but still interested...

There are no permanent riggers based in the Rio so it might be best to measure your rigging and have the top swages done only, add a foot to your measurements and buy stay locks for the bottom. This will have to come from your return trip after your visit to the USA.It's even something you can do without taking the rig down. If your lucky and you have the bucks you can pay for a rigger, if your short of cash simply replace one wire at a time. Chris is a very good source for opinions on who to use in the Rio for work and who not to, that plus hes a really nice guy. Good luck and good sailing, the Western Caribbean is a great cruising ground.

Re: Failed survey but still interested...

In fact, why don't you just bring the wire and Sta-Loks (remember to buy a few spare cones for the future), and do the whole thing yourself? They are excellent mechanical swages.
