Pylasteki is a 1961 Pearson Triton sailboat. She is one of my personal project boats... I am rebuilding her as a blue water cruiser.

Enjoy, if you have any questions or comments, drop me line:

Merry Christmas!

Lately no work has been done to Pylasteki. The bilge has been pumped out, and the lines checked... but no real progress has been made since the icebox removal. Varnish was bought and forgotten, tillers are still in need of work.

I'm seeking ideas for hard dinghy's, hopefully plans for one that would fit on top of a triton's cabin top. I'd really like to build a stitch and glue starting around the new year.

Stay warm! Merry Christmas!

Progress Update: Galley, be gone!

She's sitting like a 70's muscle car. Tail end way up high, front end way down low...

The galley was in the space shown in the left picture, and the terrarium (icebox) in the right. aft.

This weekend gave some progress. Slowly but surely her inners are piling up in the forepeak. Its amazing how many parts go into the making of a boat, spread out on the dock its a shocking they all fit.

Pearson performed marvels of engineering on these boats. The icebox slid out the companionway (after the removal of the channel for the drop boards) with hardly any room to spare. (Drop me a message if you need the Icebox for your Triton. I'll wait awhile before taking it apart for measurements, and planning for the redesign.)
