I'm going to take a pass on commenting on the "pan" interior, because I don't have any specific information. However, everything I've seen PSC do, they've done right.

Perhaps we just assume that it does!

I haven't directly compared keels, but I don't feel that my Scheel boat is close-winded. It is, however, plenty competent for cruising. I have no safety...

Also, the extra pump makes bleeding the engine a whole lot easier.

All I do is open one bleed screw, turn on the "Ignition" switch, and hold a paper towel to catch the fuel. When the pump...

Thank you. I have done the adjustments ... and it is good to know who the OEM was. PSC couldn't tell me when I called after buying the boat.

I'm glad the replacement went well. I like the way PSC designed the installation, and I just wish they hadn't decided to monkey with it when they did my new one. Either way, though, we both have...

Also, you only need the windward one. You can slack off or remove the leeward one so that the main can be fully eased.

Also, in a lot of these boats, the inner forestay has a quick disconnect at...

Engine Hours

I don't think you're that far off base ... I usually buy 20-30 year old boats so I have a different perspective.

Sailboat diesels often don't go more than 2000 hours between overhauls. This is...

Diesel hours

"Very lightly used" and 600 hours on a 2 year old diesel are NOT compatible statements. That adds up to almost 6 hours a week of engine use, 52 weeks a year. Since most of us sail more than we motor,...

Fuel Tank Replacement

Brewer's, South Freeport, replaced the tank in my '87 Sheel keel 34 this winter.

Here's how they got the rods out: two people worked at the same time, one on the nut on each end of the rod....

I did mine this spring - new glass from the local glass place and Bomar gasket material. BUT, I notice that the inner lips don't line up well with the gaskets. None of them are leaking, but it...

I think the difference is between 1 and 3 degrees. This is just a guess, however.

It does mean something, but not much unless you're racing.

I've been close-hauled in winds gusting over...

Scheel Keel

I have a 34 with the Scheel keel. They put about 400 lbs more lead in, so that the righting moment would be the same as the deep keel. She is stiff and stands up well to her canvas. However, she...

It doesn't sound all that hard to do, if you reinforce and extend the rudder post, re-mount the engine controls to the port cockpit locker, and find a new place for the compass. I'd be sure to...

PSC Bankruptcy

For some reason that I can't imagine, I received a set of the bankruptcy filings from PSC's lawyers. It lists a truly impressive set of creditors, for what that's worth.

However, it does not...

You didn't say you were that far into it ... Have you tried PB Blast? That is about the best penetrating oil on the market and has been known to work wonders if given 24 hours to soak in.

Oval Ports

I will be doing the same job in about 2 weeks (waiting for room in inside storage for the boat to be moved into before removing ports).

I asked the customer service people at PSC, who told me the...

M281 Rigging

As originally rigged (roller reefing, round boom), the M281 had no vang. My boat came with a cast aluminum horseshoe with two urethane? bumpers that could be slipped along the boom and a line tied to...

Anchor Chain

100' of chain will essentially fit in a milk crate, and the PSC34 has an unusually large forepeak due to the long bow overhang.

I think you could put 300' of chain on each side up there without...

My midship cleats showed up today, and they look great. The deck plan showing where to put them arrived a week or so ago.

I am only slightly surprised to learn that PSC is monitoring this forum....

Customer Service

I got a call back from Robin and a price for the cleats. He sounded frazzled, but was very courteous.

Hopefully they should be on their way.

I'll follow up if I don't have them in a couple...

Customer Service

I called in looking for a pair of midship cleats (never originally installed on my 34) and got a return call from Robin after 3-4 days.

He promised to let me know if they still stocked them and...
