Hi Bill,
That's great! There are photos of the boat online at Unfortunately the specs, etc are not posted online but if he emails me at I will be happy to send everything.

Hi Jeremy,
We live on a 422 and have an internet friend that has been actively looking for a 422. If you can post a link to the particulars and your email address I'll forward it to him.

My family has a Pearson 422 Center Cockpit Cutter on the Chesapeake Bay currently available for sale. Great boat! If anybody may be interested let me know.

Peter, I took patterns from the old step and mast butt and made a new one from stainless. While Al might be neutral with the mast, I chose ss for strength, and I keep then separated with a coat of grease. So far (3 y later) all is doing well. Last winter I also took the mast down to bare metal and coated it with a two-part polyurethane.

Mike, what did you build up the step with?

Comment by Mike Day on May 14, 2009 at 3:55pm
When I purchased my 323 the partners were soft, so I cleaned out the rotten area and replaced it with oak and re-bedded the collar. I have tried a couple of types of boots and found that the wrap-type seems to be the driest. The base of the mast was also in poor shape, so I cut off 3 inches and built a higher step to compensate. BTW if anyone is looking for the swing-out sink, I have removed mine when rebuilding the head and offer it for free - just pay shipping.

Do any of you 323 owners have a problem with leaks around the mast partners? If so, what have you done about it? Related, how about corrosion at the bottom of the mast on the step?

Now or Never!

I spend my summers on my Pearson 323, which I hopefully will launch in two weeks - if I can finish these winter projects.

I have a little Pearson Ariel 26, 1966. We are land locked now, lake sailing in Alabama. Even though I truly miss sailing in the Gulf Coast, I'm learning that lake sailing is better than no sailing! Of course when you can sail all year that is good too!

How do you guys like your Pearson's?

I have a Pearson 35 yawl which I liveaboard during the summer months here in New England. This year the plan is to sail south and possibly spend the winter months in the Bahamas.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
