Re: is there a major difference in foot length of boats?

Either of those boats will cross an ocean no worries. A bigger boat will be more comfortable, carry more gear, and be faster. For example a Cheoy Lee 30 carries about 35 gallons of water. Crossing an...

Re: hatch repair

I think most people will find it hard to picture the part you are trying to repair. Can you post a picture? Is this a sliding hatch? is the core saturated, or is it still dry?

Re: Crealock-34 head

We have looked closely at almost every head made. The Grocco K is the only one we could find that fit the 34 with no modification. The Compact PHII fits with minor modification, but not nearly as...

Re: Calling all crapper experts

For sure heat up the hose before fitting. It is a nightmare otherwise. Either the heat gun, or dip in boiling water. I have replaced all my hoses 3 times. It is always a nightmare, but once I learned...

Re: Got the air bleed blues

FWIW - last time I bled my injectors, I had to try three times to get it to work. Even if it does not work at first, it might still be worth trying. As Al points out, for sure make sure you turn off...

Re: Got the air bleed blues

If you are going to bleed the injectors, I strongly urge you to use flare nut wrenches. If yours are like mine, they are very easy to damage using regular wrenches.

Re: composting toilet-should we do it

No reason the must, yet they do.

No gurantee, yet they don't.

Could not disagree with this more. Stinking is completely the deciding factor. I spent 3 years, several thousand dollars,...

Re: Anybody have an engine monkey I could use?

My rudder posts leaks. I have hired three pros to crawl back there and fix it, all three come to the boat, then declined to do the work. One of our fine forum members did it for me. The long-term...

Re: composting toilet-should we do it

We switched to a composting head after 3 years, 100+ hours, and $3000+ dollars of trying to eliminate odors from our conventional holding tank system. We finally gave up. Our tank is only 18 gallons....

Re: Rope Clutch With Lever Pointing Forward

I am hoping we can get away with just sanding and painting once more before we have to strip it. We did not get an estimate for the more complex bottom job.

Re: PS37 Trash Can

Updating an old thread with another reference number in case anyone needs to order a can. On my 1989 34, the bin is a Continental 2818.

Re: Cabin speakers?

I am using a pair of Polk T15 and they are prefect. They are $100/pair currently at Best Buy, but where only $50/pair just before Christmas. Not sure if that is a regular thing or not.

Re: Best U.S. city for sailing, living aboard, working

I got too curious and had to get nerdy about this.

I pulled a list of the 100 largest metro areas on the US. This is basically every metro area of 1/2 million or more.

I threw out any metro...

Re: Flush Mount Ventilators

I just replaced my dorades with Nicro Day Night Plus solar vents. They run all the time and move a lot of air. They can be shut off, and switched from intake to exhaust easily. Ideally you have two,...

Re: anchor type question

If I was in your shoes I would put a 16lb danforth on 1/2 inch three strand and 30' of chain.

If you want to splurge, get a Fortress FX-16 instead. Much nicer anchor, but also much more $$.

Re: Fasteners holding down the cockpit sole

The floor has a flange that the lid sits on. On each corner there is a bolt bedded in the floor the lid drops down over. See pictures below for examples.

Re: Stow location for batteries on PSC 34

Of course we have no ventilation. Has anyone added ventilation to the port locker? If so how? I cannot imagine venting to the interior, but I also hate to create a new leak source. I have thought...

Re: Stow location for batteries on PSC 34

Indigo has managed to sandwich four batteries into the location where your two are in the port cockpit locker. Best way I have seen to increase capacity on the 34. Check out his website for details....

Re: Docking for Dummies

I recommend finding a buoy near you in a place with little traffic and waves. If you cannot find one, make one with a fender. Spend an hour pretending it is your slip. Approach it from upwind, down...
