Re: Has anyone raised the boom on a PSC 37'?

Very good question! Relatedly, what height or angle is recommended for the boom in the first place and how much can one change this without recutting the main?

Re: Leaking hatches on PSC 37

pc37Howard,

Sounds like even the silicon used like a gasket under the lid (there is a small ~1/8-1/4" amount showing around the lid right now) needs to be removed in order to get a good...

Re: Leaking hatches on PSC 37

pc37Howard, thanks for the recommendations. We did a test and sure enough it looks like the forward water tank requires silicon around the lid edge.

Re: alternative to PSC 37 dressing seat

I find the dressing seat a very nice way to step down from the vee berth. However, if there was a simple way to level it with the vee berth when sleeping room was needed and back to a seat easily...

Re: Singlehanding a PSC37???

Really can't imagine the work and cost of 2 boats! And most of the time, too much fun being on the same boat! I think I like taking turns single-handing better than that alternative.
