Pearson 365/367 Yacht Club / Re: Are you launching this year?
« on: May 09, 2020, 02:48:33 PM »
I plan on staying on the hard too. We live 100 miles away from the boat. The boatyard just opened up but have to be out of there at 4:30 every day. When things open up a little and hopefully less people at the boatyard, it will be better. Maybe take a week or two off and rent an RV to stay in. Right now, out-of-staters have to leave Rhode Island at night. I'm in the process of replacing all the fresh water lines and faucets. I bought a windlass and will put that on the list. Also I will be sewing a new dodger. Did the bimini last year.

Congratulations, where do you sail out of?

This doesn't work out too bad for me. I never have enough time to do what is needed, so a year on the hard may work out.
This winter I had the v-drive rebuilt, a new cutlass bearing, and a new Gori 2-bladed folding prop. Last year I sewed a new bimini, first time I did anything like that. It actually came out pretty good. I also put in a new hot water heater but have to do the freshwater side, new pump, hoses, etc. I am am going to start on a dodger as soon as I can can into the boatyard to make a pattern. Mast is off and need to get the rigging inspected. Maybe new lifelines. A million other things also. It never ends.

Try contacting Schaefer Marine. Don't know if they have masts for sale  but they made the original masts and may be able to help you. They are in New Bedford, MA

The shaft is stainless. The engine is a 39hp Yanmar. The trans is a ZF. The final ratio is 2:1. The prop is the original 17" 2 blade, which I might replace.  I suspect once the v-drive is reconditioned by Walter and everything is aligned properly, everything will be fine. I think you confirmed what I thought, that the pillow bearing is not necessary.

Thanks,
Mike

He wants to glue in a plastic housing and a cutlass bearing into the shaft log and then convert the water tap on the PSS shaft seal to pressurized with a hose off the engine raw water to get water to the bearing. He gave me a chart that shows the max distance between supports for a 1-1/8 diameter shaft is 4'9". I think that there is more than just shaft diameter involved in possible shaft whipping. Maybe this is necessary on bigger, more powerful boats but I haven't heard of this before.

Pearson 365/367 Mechanic Shop / Prop shaft center bearing
« on: December 04, 2019, 07:20:37 PM »
I have a problem with vibration in the drivetrain on my 367. I noticed that the prop shaft is touching the top of the shaft log. Looks like the v-drive needs to be lowered and aligned. We checked the prop shaft and it runs true. The mechanic I'm working with wants to add a bearing in the shaft log because the length of the shaft between supports exceeds some standard and possible whipping of the prop shaft could be causing some vibrations. I  think we have uncovered more than enough possible problems that could be causing the problem (i.e. v-drive alignment and cutlass bearing). I am resisting the center bearing idea because I have not seen this on this forum. Any suggestions or opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

So we went for a short sea trail with the guy that was recommended to us. Since I have never been on another 365/367, I had no perspective of what is normal. He said the vibration wasn't really that bad but showed me the prop shaft vibrating when we took it up to speed. So definitely going to replace the cutlass bearing. Also going to replace the bellows on the PSS while everything is out. He recommended a 3 blade prop. Don't know if it's worth it to go with a feathering prop. V-drive alignment will be last.

Forgot to add Allen's harbor is quiet.  Facilities include free pump out, restrooms and a couple of showers. A couple of transient moorings and a couple of people anchor there some weekend. Very nice people and kept very clean.

Dale,

I think it's about $1800. Includes a free dinghy dock. There is storage right across the street and RI Moorings. $50/ft storage. They have a travel lift. They are trying to require to have them do your work for new customers. Don't know how that's going to work for them. There are a number of other places close by. A number of boat yards in Wickford. I don't know the details on any of them. There is also Clark's in Jamestown. Dutch Harbor is a place to stay away from, not protected.

Allen's Harbor Marina 401-294-1212
RI Moorings - 401-295-2502

Plus tons of good restaurants and things to do nearby when the weather isn't conducive to sailing for the Admiral.
I'm in Allen's Harbor. Check it out on Google maps. Run by the town of North Kingstown (you don't have to be a resident) and costs a lot less than other places. We can paddle board when there is white caps on the bay.

Good to hear from you. Did you consider Rhode Island verses Maine? Longer sailing season ,fewer lobster traps, and you can watch great whites swimming next to your boat (just kidding, they bypass us for the cape). I'm moored in a hurricane hole and there is a 365 moored next to me.

I took mine apart. The cooler is just a tube that the oil gets flung on. If you don't have water in the oil, it's fine. There is no maintenance.
