Thanks for the reply Alan. Tomorrow is the big day for the new 34' and then the puch goes to my 37 and the 34 that is in the PSC factory for the tiller conversion and other improvements.

I would enjoy getting a chance to be your guest and surely we will meet along the way on one of my trips to Washington. Your boat was shown to me a month ago, what a beauty!

Alan,

It was blowing pretty well on the Pamlico yesterday afternoon; I bet that was fun.

The Kopps arrived this morning with No Agenda, their 44, making the eighth Pacific Seacraft currently on the dock at Carolina Wind. Anam Cara, the 34, will make the ninth tomorrow.

For at least a couple of days, there will be:
One 31 (for sale)
One Pilothouse 32 (charter/for sale)
Two 34's
One 37
Three 40's
One 44

It's a beautiful sight! There is nothing like a dock full of Pacific Seacrafts.

Karlin, glad to hear your project is moving along and look forward to more updates!

Indirectly related: I recently attempted to refurb my 83 PSC 37 bronze port lights' interior surfaces. The first one I applied Brasso on a rag by hand and carefully buffed to no advantage, then graduated to a toothbrush with no significant improvement. Disgruntled, I detached the hinged window "frame" from the portal and used fine sand paper (did not, but should have had dust mask - very dirty) followed by Brasso for good results. The interior surface of the portal took much effort as it is tedious to work standing leaned over at eye level. Sanding and polishing the small pieces were tedious as well. I finished it off with Never-Dull. Seeking a faster, easier approach on the second one, I again detached the hinged frame from the portal and then disassembled the retaining ring to scrape/remove the old (polysulfide?) black adhesive and pane. The original #? screws are weak and several failed. Replacements not readily found but suspect a clock repair shop may have them. I tapped all and used new #6 brass screws (Kemah Hardware). Re-tap the small holes - do not drill out for #6. Drilled out two stubs - don't. Recommend leaving stubs and drilling/tapping new offset hole thru retaining ring (countersink) and frame - alignment critical - tap both together. Using PPE outdoors I dipped/soaked/rubbed for about 5 minutes all bronze pieces in a plastic pail with a few ounces of muriatic acid for swimming pools ($5). I filled the bucket with water to rinse and then neutralized it to pH > 6 before discharge. Used Brasso to clean up remainder. Applied common silicone directly to edge of pane to seal safety glass. Re-assembled using clear Life Seal ($13/tube - don't over apply). Let it setup some before tightening ring. I covered with plastic/masked off the interior and (with PPE) used a small brush to lightly, sparingly, apply acid from a plastic cup onto the vertical interior surface of the portal. Very delicate and risky. Fumes. But effective. Finished off with Brasso and Never-Dull. Method #1 is less risky but requires more elbow grease and time. Looking for better way.

I snapped a quick shot of the lineup we've been working on at the dock, before we put the tall stick things on the new 34 and the refurbed 40. They both have canvas and sails now, too. Karlin, I look forward to seeing yours as well!



We need to get all these beauties out on the water for a full sail photo shoot!

That's a funny shot. Thanks! I see the Kon Jeni-AL there :-) (3rd from the right)

Reminds me of that funny shot you see of the billboards in Las Vegas of all those women leaning over.

SecondWind:

That's a great shot. I look forward to seeing your OTW shots. Maybe you can share some of the high res photos off line if you have a flicker, picasa or snapfish type account. I think Alan and I were thinking the same thing.

Regards,
Ted

Thanks for the compliments on the photo.

If there ends up being an on-the-water shoot, it would take a lot of coordination and I definitely wouldn't be the official photographer. But if I'm lucky enough to be involved, I'll try to get a couple shots of my own and share 'em.
