Re: Woohoo!! We're gonna be Crealock owners!

Dale, that's a beautiful boat!

I really like the PSC 37s. I've crewed for a friend who has a Crealock 37 ("Intention", built before Pacific Seacraft acquired the molds), and he's taken that boat...

Re: PSC 37 How many have done away with staysail?

VALIS is a PSC44, but we have a permanent staysail on a furler. We have a 120% genoa with a slightly high clew. It's not a yankee, but it's not a deck-sweeper either (I had the foot cut high for...

The extended angle guard was original on VALIS, and it has the 12" centers. Again, the Navpod (GP2050) centers and the guard centers were not a good fit. I don't know which one was off. I forced...

For what it's worth, the B&G gear will probably interface just fine. I've got B&G "Network" stuff on VALIS (at least 12 years old), and two Furuno NN3D 8-inch chartplotters. You can tap off the...

It's not a bad idea to have a few feet of excess sheet, in case you need to replace a chafed eye. You may need to tie a quick bowline (or buntline hitch, etc), as an emergency repair, so allow...

I just look for wear.

Jibsheets typically chafe at the sail clew attachment and where they rub against the shrouds. Halyards can chafe at the blocks, and at any shackle eyes. Look carefully...

Correct -- stretching generates heat, and that's where the lost power goes. Stretchy sheets can also make it more difficult to keep the sails properly trimmed.

Honestly, for cruising you're not...

For what it's worth, we have a deck-mount for one pole, and keep the other on the mast. The deck-mount is dimensioned to fit the spin pole, but since the whisker can be collapsed to spin-pole...

Sta-Set X is also good. It uses a parallel-lay core (not braided) so it has slightly less stretch than regular Stay-Set. Low-stretch is a good thing for sheets and halyards.

Agree, get what fits...

A whisker pole is great, especially for long runs. I've spent days running downwind wing and wing using a whisker pole.

A regulation-length spinnaker pole is really too short to fully pole-out a...

I've got a PSC44, but I've crewed a bit on a friend's 37 (actually a pre-Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37, but it's essentially the same boat.) You *don't* have to bury the rail, but the boat does move...

The LeFiell mast on my PSC44 has two conduits. I have no idea what your '34 has, but you definitely need to secure the cables one way or another. Don't let them hang loose inside the mast.
