Arch Designs for PSC 37

I'm considering putting an arch on my 37 to handle the dinghy, some electronics and eventually some solar panels. Does anyone have any design ideas I can at least start with. Photo's would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

There are some basic ideas about it in Tor Pinney's book Ready for Sea. Pages 65 and 67.

Re: Arch Designs for PSC 37

I do not know if you noticed that your stern is low when you run on high rpm on the engine.
I think that a dingy hanged on the stern will bring the stern to be too close to the drink.

My boat came with arch made by PO. I removed it before the boat was shipped to me. The design need to be very creative to fit on a narrow canoe stern and still to complement the beauty of the boat.

Re: Arch Designs for PSC 37

Alan,
Bill Kund, who does most of the photography for Pacific Seacraft, has a really nice arch on his PSC 40 Worthless Wench. You can see his boat featured on PSC's website. Many arches look like add on after-thoughts, but Bill's arch is integrated into the aft pulpit and bimini - well thought out and sleek. I saw it up close in the Chesapeake and was impressed with the design and workmanship.

I plan on doing something similar on Indigo. I really want something that does not detract from the looks or add too much weight aft and aloft. Then again, Tor Pinney's design is light weight and easily taken down if you ever want to ship the boat by truck. I was glad we did not have an arch when Indigo made the trip cross country a couple of years ago.
