Hi, I'm looking for a Pearson
36-2 owner to help me with the following question ...
I've owned a 1985 Pearson
36-2 for 6 years. During the launch this year I noticed the keel mast
step is not flat front to back. The steel
plate which the mast
sits on and which is bolted to two cross members above the keel
, is sunken into the gelcoated aft cross member
by 3 tenths of an inch. The steel
plate is not sunken in on the fwd cross member
. I don't recall
the steel plate being sunken into the aft cross member, however the gelcoat
is not cracked and one could think it was formed that way. Can anyone tell me if the steel plate should be sunken into the aft cross member?
