My name is George DuBose, I live in Cologne, Germany
, but I keep my two Pearsons in East Hampton, NY. I have a 1973 P-36 and a 1970 P-26. Since moving to Germany
and having two baby boys, my sailing was temporarily curtailed. The P-26 got away from me on a maintenance
level and my German wife wanted a boat with a hot shower
, so I got a P-36 handy man special. In 2008, I will be working on two boats.
How the previous owner of the P-36 had the nerve to list a ton of electronics
when 90% of them didn't work and hadn't worked in years is beyond me, but I had a surveyor
go over the boat and there was nothing on the survey
that prempted my purchase
. Some cosmetic work and a new suite of electronics
and I should have a 100% boat.
I have a lot of questions about materials to use, ideas about how to mount a windlass
, etc. that I hope the other members can suggest solutions for.
Specifically, I would like to contact other owners of 70s P-36s. Anyone with a P-36 that would like to have a dialog with me can contact me through the forum or more directly at email@example.com
