Thanks everyone. A desperate and emotional post while I packed up my boat connected with a buyer looking for a 34. Surveying Friday.

I appreciate the encouragement and ideas. I have one headed...

Re: Can't keep my boat

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. It's very true I'm putting it off and not "quite there" yet. I'll follow up Davashcow and others that have contacted. I'm showing the boat next week, I'm sure someone...

Can't keep my boat

Hard to believe but I'm having to let go of my dream for now. I'm recently out of work and won't be able to work for a while due to health issues (42 fricken years old), and won't be able to keep up...

Re: winterizing the bilge?

It's posted in the pacific seacraft section, assuming it's a PS.

Just use a small pitcher or cup and bail it out, then use a bailing sponge to finish it. This is what I do with my 34. Use a...

Re: Pacific Seacraft 34 lines drawing

I may have some poster sized line drawings I could reproduce for you if nothing else pans out.

Re: Pacific Seacraft Portlight Gaskets

Bill, in case you remember or have records, what were specs on the solid square neo. from McC? Curious about thickness. Mine are gnarly looking but don't leak at all. Time to get ahead of that one...

Re: Oriental to Ocracoke

Nice job. It's an accomplishment for sure, and a natural progression for NC sailors. Great observations about crew distractions and running aground. It happens. I've seen sailboats aground several...

Re: Rowing an inflatable

I've had several inflatables, last two high pressure floor with inflatable keel. I never put the outboard on for many trips. I'd say I row 95% of the time to my mooring, which is maybe 400' ok, 300...

Re: Oriental to Ocracoke

Use the one the ferry uses. Is that big foot? I've done it a gazillion times but I don't ever use the name. Very good advice about the markers. Many people feel as if they are coming in from sea...

Re: Nicro Day-Night 2000 solar vent repair

I'm just remembering I sent one back a couple years ago now and haven't heard back. I haven't had good luck with these, I don't consider them a quality product. A good idea, some good elements, but...

Re: Boat Shoes

The astral brewer has a little more tread and traction and the porter has more of a smooth, siped sole. It's a small company based out of North Carolina, with some great innovative designs. The...

Re: Boat Shoes

Tropical climate? I don't think so. Too many good purpose built options out there with good ventilation and water tolerant. The astral footwear shoes I wear have the kind of flexibility and traction...

Re: Boat Shoes

Astral footwear.

I've worn all the rest, they suck for long term cruising and offshore work.

Astral is a new shoe brand, and they have made a great product. I own a pair of Brewers, lowyaks,...

Re: Bilge pump wiring

Bilge pumps should run straight to a power source, ie battery or bus, with proper fuse. If you are away from the boat, does your pump fire up with a float or solid state switch? Isn't the power to...

Re: Boom Height in Cockpit

Mine was raised by PO, who was a giant. I'm only 5'11" and I never think about it.

Re: Steering cable adventure...

Weird bob. Sounds like a good time to convert to tiller :)

I'm sorry I don't have relevant experience, although I have the same wheel. As I think about its design, it would have to cross at some...

Re: Crealock 34 tiller shape?

Is there some benefit to one shape over the other? The F style is straighter with less drop, and the G is quite bowed.

Re: Crealock 34 tiller shape?

Jealous. Will be quite a while before I can convert, but jeez it's not that bad with a wheel. I'll be happy to just keep the boat at this point.

I guess it takes some practice docking Bill, and...

Re: Crew Wanted: Florida to Virginia Offshore

Hi rightcoasting, did you get your boat home yet? I have a PSC 34 and love that passage in the Gulf Stream. Great time of year out there and the fishing can be epic.

Re: Two weeks all alone what to expect?

It takes me a long time to get bored or lonely. I did multi-month silent meditation retreats when I was younger, sailing was naturally attractive as a way to get some solitude.

Re: Minimum electronics for coastal cruising

Interesting to see people prioritize a depth sounder. That's really low on my list, I'm only concerned about VHF and chartplotter/gps. I'd rather have AIS than a depth sounder. Of course I have all...

Re: 34 vs 37

Unless you have really specific needs, keep your eye open for the best value of the two. The 34 is near perfect for singlehanding and the only thing I really dislike about the boat is the wheel. It...

Re: looking for info or ride on crealock 34

I bought mine in Charlotte Harbor just south of you and sailed home to NC. It didn't have a depth sounder but I stayed off the bottom through shallow waters with that shoal draft. 4' and some change...
