if anybody has a copy of the factory electrical drawings I would greatly appreciate a copy of them. My sailboat is a 1987 Pearson 33-2 with a centerboard. The original wiring is not labeled and I'm interested in replacing the electrical panels with new Blue Seas breaker panels.any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried a Google search on Pearson sailboats? I only ask because that may the only way to find a Pearson users group, whether it be a Yahoo or Google group, 'cuz I'm unaware of any Pearson website.

If that doesn't work, most factory wiring came this way:

C post of 1-2-B switch to starter lug with a smaller wire to the Alternator output which went back through the same wire to the C post.

Here's a description of how that design worked:

You would do well to improve that old system based on the following designs:

Do you have the original 33-2 owner's manual? My recollection is that there is a wiring diagram in the manual. I have an 87 33-2 centerboard and have the original manual. Unfortunately, it is on the boat and I'm unlikely ot get there for the next several weeks.

The original 33-2 owners manual was in a cabinet on the starboard side underneath a stanchion the leaked all over it thus the manual was destroyed. If you could send me a copy of your electrical drawings I would greatly appreciate it as I have some factory wiring that has me befuddled. Thanks Kevin

If someone has a copy of the P33-2 owner's manual, I could sure use a copy. I'm going over to have a look at one next week and I could use a bit of information before I get there. Thanks! Bob

I have still have not been able to get my hands on a wiring diagram. I'm continuing to improve my boat - awiring diagram would be quite helpful. It's a great boat that I'm taking south this fall.
