Re: PSC34 Rudder Post

Hi, sorry I can't help. I just wanted to ask what kind of packing does PSC use in their rudder posts? We were having a problem with water coming in, too, when we were sailing. Today, cleaned some...

Re: Propane Powered Outboard Engine Experience??

Hello sblahnikod,
I've sent a request to the Venture Newport Yahoo group to join (even though I don't have a V. Newport). Otherwise I can't see the thread. I'll see what happens. I 'd love to...

Re: Propane Powered Outboard Engine Experience??

I'm not easily finding these threads. Can you tell me what you heard about the maintenance? We are considering a propane motor and were under the impression that they would be less maintenance than...

Re: Depth sounders

Thanks, johnharch,
I think you're right. The PSC hull shape probably dictates the transducer placement. On other, flatter-hulled boats, it can go towards the bow. In any case, I agree: I really...

Re: depth finder

Our transducer is located behind the keel, too. It seems like an odd choice to me, but there must have been a good reason for the original location choice, even if we decide sometime to move it. ...

Re: How low can you run your fuel tank

I found out the hard way that one should never trust the fuel gauge. Ours was reading 1/4 tank and I was going to fill up the next day.... when we ran out of fuel.

If you're going to empty the...

Re: What do you think about starting a Pacific Seacraft Owner's Association?

Most summers, the Seattle Seacraft Brokerage organizes a Pacific Seacraft rendezvous here in the Northwest. I've only owned our PSC37 for 1 year and 3/4 and haven't been able to make one yet, but I...

Re: Singlehanding a PSC37???

I have the Strong Track on my Pacific Seacraft 37. It was a fabulous improvement. However, I still find it tiring to bring in all the halyard from the cockpit (being an older female might have...

Re: Biggest boat you an comfortably single hand?

I singlehand our Pacific Seacraft 37 and am very comfortable doing so, although admittedly autohelm makes it possible. High lifelines, a high gunwale, and good grab rails really help. Also, as I'm...

One more quick note about furling the jib - you can wrap the furling line on a winch to make it easier to pull in, but do not use a winch handle. If the jib is not furling with just your own...

I highly recommend going downwind to furl a jib. It is much easier to furl a jib going downwind because the apparent wind is less than the true wind, the main can blanket the jib, and the wind holds...

Hey, thanks, Jay! I'll forward this to my husband who loves to be the tool guy. Any excuse to get a new tool makes his day (mine, too; I just don't let on).
Congratulations on the imminent launch...

Great advice about the drill. A friend of mine showed me that one. Can you be more specific about obtaining a winch bit from the sailing magazines? I haven't found one so far. Thanks very much.

Will do... as soon as I get to that part of the to-do list! I assume you have Otto to help steer (autohelm). He's invaluable when I'm single-handing.
Cheers

Thanks, HyLyte. Will try the snapshackle idea as I, too, would like to control the height of the tack.

reacher tack

Hi PS owners (or not),
I'm still getting to know our Pacific Seacraft 37. I have a question about the reacher tack. It's not obvious to me where to attach the reacher's tack shackle. I've...
