Re: information on a PS40

Before answering, I should probably point out that owners tend to be chauvinistic about their boats, so anything I or other PS owners say is likely to be a bit biased...

But yes, the 40 is a...

Re: Location of official hull number

Since it's the owner and not the manufacturer who "installs" this number on the boat, it could be almost anywhere. I'd suggest checking accessible areas around the engine, in lockers and under the...

Re: Confused

I'm almost certain the 37 was originally called the "Crealock 37" back when the first 16-or-so hulls were built by Cruising Consultants, a company that went bankrupt and sold the molds to the...

Re: Pacific Seacraft 61?

I believe it's "Catari," a Bob Perry design that PS and Steve Brodie are/were custom building for a buyer in Annapolis. There was an article, including some design comments by Bob, in Blue Water...

Re: Running backstay on my PSC 34

Bob:

We sail a 40, not the 34 or 37, but I imagine the "rules" would be similar. The running backs are meant to keep the mast from "pumping" when the staysail is used. My belief is that in very...

Re: Pacific Sea Craft 25 MK-I

There's a Pacific Seacraft 25 owners' group on Yahoo that might be able to provide more info. My memory, hazy at best, is that the original 25 was designed by Henry Morschladt in the 1970s and was...

Not sure about the tank on the 34 but on the 40 the tank is baffled, which helps reduce the possibility of sucking air in a lively sea.
