Pearson Pilothouse / Our Pearson Pilothouse 36 aka Toothpick
« on: November 09, 2020, 10:54:08 AM »
Greetings from Mexico, Puerto Vallarta, Mx. to be specific. We have been trying to sell our  Pearson for a year or so now, and because of my health, its time to pass it along to a Pearson family who knows the boat, and loves to keep up the Pearson tradition. I have kept up on Toothpick, 5 year old sails, running a Westerbek 50, which is my pride and joy, and runs great. We have added many extras to the vessel, small gen set, watermaker, ham radio, etc. all working with a few needed things, like a membrane for the Spectra watermaker. I would love to show you Pearson family friends more photos and information. I am very interested in getting the done, it breaks my heart to do this, 30K is what I am asking. jim Nordstrom at:

Pearson 365/367 Mechanic Shop / injecton pump for Westerbek 50

I have a Westerbek 50 in my Pearson Pilothouse 36. The injection pump is starting to leak from the gear end of the pump; only a few drops but it needs to be rebuilt with new seals, etc. The Pearson book says that it is a CAV injection pump, but does anyone know what pump, since the boat is in Mexico now, and I am in California for the summer months. ( Way too hot in Mexico during the summer) Its a four cylinder diesel engine, but the local Westerbek dealer, says Westerbek refers any information to CAV Can anyone help, jim N

We have had Toothpick since 1994 and its getting to be time to move on. I have enjoyed the projects, and still have plans for many more, but getting tired of making changes in foreign places. Toothpick presently resides in Puerto Vallarta, Mx. where she has been since 2002. We enjoy her as a floating condo in a foreign place. Changes to Toothpick are too numerous to say, but will invite any inquiries. jim nordstrom
