Re: Issue With Dual Racor Fuel Filter System

No, the fuel is not leaking back into the engine - the oil level has remained constant and at the correct level. I had thought of that too, after the first occurrence, and have been watching it.

Re: Issue With Dual Racor Fuel Filter System

That's the setup, correct -

The installation was done professionally, by a Yanmar dealer. Yes, thread sealant was used on all fittings and I was with the mechanic when the system was serviced. As...

Re: Issue With Dual Racor Fuel Filter System

I agree it's gotta be going back into the tank. I'm not aware of a check-valve in the fuel supply line; the supply line was replaced about 4 years ago, along with the fuel return line prior to the...

Oh, no danger of overthinking things here...:laugh

Only due consideration for what will work. I'm actually hoping to put this off for another few weeks until the annual spring rebuild of the head.

A friend suggested using a SS plate as well; much more strength for much less thickness...with our short legs, this could be a great option...



I've been pondering over this exact (potential)...

The two rear holes through which the fasteners that secure the head to the raised plinth are wallowed and no longer hold much of a 'bite' on the screws/bolts that go through them. The head is a Groco...

Re: Bimini for PS34

As has been said, it's important for bimini and dodger to work together. And I would strongly encourage you to have the bimini made by a canvas shop to fit your boat.

In the interest of full...

Re: Removing PS34 compression post

We had concerns about having to do this during our (still ongoing!) refit. Our issue wasn't a leak at the step, but more concern for the floors at that base of the post. Fortunately, we didn't have...

Re: 34 running rigging

You can contact the factory in North Carolina, ask for Thumper. We purchased a running rigging package from the factory as part of our (nearly finished!) refit on out 34.

Re: Online hardware/equipment retailer?

If you're fortunate enough to live in an area with an honest-to-goodness chandler, then count your blessings. We have a decent enough one here in Savannah, GA, but do a lot through online stores.

Re: cockpit cover seals

We replaced ours aboard Jo Beth during this (ever continuing!) refit. I'll see if I can find the specs on it, but it's a gasket material from McMaster-Carr. We also replaced the gaskets on our...

Re: Shades for Old Style Port Lights, PS 34

We've been considering pretty much the same solution, using cardboard covered with something or another. It does seem a good way to deal with the issue.

Shades for Old Style Port Lights, PS 34

For those of you with an older PS and bronze port lights...what are you using for curtains/shades? Not just to block light but for privacy as well? Now that we're living aboard Jo Beth, and still on...

Re: How did you get your spouse to embrace the cruising life?

I met my wife at the marina where I kept my first little sailboat. Most of her sailing experience was in dinghies or as crew on tall ships. There wasn't much convincing needed to for either of us to...

Re: Pacific Seacraft - three (3) models. Comments?

That's right! It's the 31 interior that reminds of the Dana 24. I was on a delivery crew for one of the early 31's. We took it from St. Pete to Miami for the boat show; was around '90 or '91 if...

Re: Pacific Seacraft - three (3) models. Comments?
