Bow Roller

I’m getting ready to mount my new anchor roller on the bow of the boat. I know it needs to be in line of the anchor locker but I’m a little lost on how far to mount the over hang. I’m thinking it’s all according to the shank length on the ancho but I haven’t got the right anchor yet that I’m going t...

Re: PEARSON TRITON 28 hull 230

Oops I might have messed up on the fasteners on the hand rails I used regular bolts that ran all the way through from one Handel to the other. I covered both ends with teak plugs and sealant. I figured if air and water couldn’t get to them they would be fine. The coach roof I used stainless and the ...

Re: PEARSON TRITON 28 hull 230

I picked that toilet up off eBay for 150 dollars and it come with the pump and handle Complet. It was very lightly used condition.
I still have to plum it in with holding tank nut looking forward to that.
I might go with a composting toilet maybe a c- head if I do and you want it I let you know

Re: Pearson Triton Hull #663 - My new boat pics

Like that blue color on the sides. I wanted to paint Mine a different color but I’m afraid of it generating a lot of heat down below. Good color for the northern climates but down here in the south silver and white about the only colors you can handle

Re: Rudder

Hey James did you order your shaft with the key way already cut or did you have it cut afterwards? Mcmasters has 1 inch shafts with keyway already cut into the shaft. The shaft with keyway cut is a little pricey 352 dollars for 72” I’m sure you would have to have a machine shop cut the keyway and th...

Aries windvane

I bought an Aries wind vane off eBay for my Triton I think it will work on there alright but I thinking I’m going to have to shorten the ruder shaft a little and take the mounting brackets to a machine shop and have them cut and welded at a new angle. I only got two of the clamps with the unit that ...
