Re: Pearson 33 Thoroughbred

Pearson made several 33 footers. If you are talking about the 1969-75 Keel centerboard 33. One of my friends has one. I go out on the Potomac river with him several times each season. The boat is a nice size both above and below deck, and sails very well and will really scoot in a nice breeze.

Re: Renegade #88 Deck refit (Fall 2019- ???)

Yes, that is exactly the problem. When I bought the Dodger, my main concern was to shield the hatch from rain and spray. Not so much the people in the cockpit. Most of my sailing is in warm weather so getting a little wet was not a big deal. To help with the problem I am adding a version of the Sail...

Re: Renegade #88 Deck refit (Fall 2019- ???)

Pmnfernando I'll post some more detailed pictures of the dodger when I get a chance. The dodger is from Island nautical canvas. Overall, I like the design and the shape, but there a few things that cause problems on my boat. The biggest issue is the way the canvas covers the cockpit combing. On the ...

Re: Renegade #88 Deck refit (Fall 2019- ???)

Thanks, the deck paint is Total boat wet edge with Kiki grip. Applied with a 1/8" notched spreader and then lightly rolled with the special roller. This produces a very fine texture more like a traditional paint with a nonskid additive. I went this route after applying Kiwi grip to the cockpit ...

Re: Renegade #88 Deck refit (Fall 2019- ???)

The thinking behind the mooring bit reinforcements has to do with where I occasionally keep the boat. On one of the finger lakes in NY. The mooring location has, depending on direction 10 to 20 miles of fetch so can get rather rough on a windy day. This is my first choice for cleat and mooring bit l...

Re: My new boat-1968 Pearson Wanderer #102

I just wanted to say the boat looks beautiful. Also what a nice place to sail. Growing up I spent my summers on Seneca lake. Now I try to get back there whenever I can. I Planning On trailering my Renegade up to Buffalo and cruising the Erie canal to Seneca lake this summer.
