Re: PSC 31 / PSC 32 Pilothouse

Well, damn. After being on the market for 2 years, she got an offer and was out for a sea trial the day I planned on going down to see her!

I'll keep my eye out for one... especially on the water...

Re: PSC 31 / PSC 32 Pilothouse

Thanks for the info!

I was reading last night about Asym spinnakers on PS 31's. All of the reviews seemed favorable. Some discussion about using a furler vs. sock. The furling system sure seems...

PSC 31 / PSC 32 Pilothouse

Hi all,

I'm looking at a PSC 32 Pilothouse. There isn't much info out there about them. I've read that its the same hull as the PSC 31 (the newer one, not the Mariah).

That said, can I ask...

Re: Death of in-mast furling/new mast

Yeah, dropping that kind of cash for a cosmetic thing seems so odd... especially if you are selling your boat. I mean, you could redo all of the cabin upholstery, hire a bunch of models to pose...

Re: Death of in-mast furling/new mast

Good points about the lack of washed up boats in the BVI. We chartered down in the Grenadines last Feb, and lots of boats had RF mains.

Outbound: I know exactly how I'm going to use the boat. ...

replacement of in-mast furling/new mast

Hi all,

I'm close to making an offer on a Sabre 362. It has in-mast furling. That's one of the main reasons why I haven't made an offer.

Well, come to find out, the owner is currently (as in...

Re: RF Main pros and cons

Hello all,

Glad to join the lively discussion.

To me, it seems that the biggest argument against a RF main is dealing with the worst case scenario. Say, you finished the bottle of rum and woke...

No, we're not set on Anacortes. We'd look at Blaine, Bellingham, and even Seattle if need be. We bought our old boat in Blaine and we loved that marina. Bellingham is a...

Hi All,

Seattle Upholstery

Can anyone recommend an upholstery shop? My 1990 C&C 34+ is looking a bit threadbare.

Anywhere in the Seattle/Tacoma/Portland area is fine.

Esteemed sailing colleagues,

Sup Puddin?

I did find one! If the survey goes well, we'll be sailing her down the end of May. We'll pull over in Seattle and buy you a beer for your help and advice.

Thanks for the post. I follow your logic. If I spent a lot of dough on a boat and the frame rusted out of it, I'd whine like crazy. As much as I've scoured the internet, I would think...
