Rudder Bushings
Early P30's (in the first year or two?) had aluminum rudder shafts that are subject to wear and corrosion. Pearson apparantly issued a recall and replaced these with stainless shafts but it is unknown if all were retrofitted.

The delrin bushings for the shaft are available from D&R Marine. See the parts page for contact info.

Tiller to Wheel Conversion

Some excellent stern rail seats

P30 Masthead Sheave Box
The sheave box shown here (1976 P30 #917) is removable. It has a flange that sits in the top of the mast extrusion. There are screws that hold it in place.
