Re: what kind of paint for marking my anchor chain

I use 103' of 5/16" BBB on my 44 lb Bruce. It was leaving rust stains on the deck when we got back from the Bahamas this year in June, and I needed to have it re-galvanized. I talked to South...

Re: Stay sail running rigging

I replaced one of mine. I was (I think) a Schaefer 78-07. The plastic plate comes with it.

The backing plate was (again, I think) a Schaefer 97-53.

Re: cockpit cover seals

I have a roll of foam tape with adhesive on one side that I got from a NAPA car parts store. It is on the boat, so I am not really sure of the part number. It may be this stuff:

Re: what kind of paint for marking my anchor chain

I use 7" colored zip ties with one attached to each side of the 25', 50', 75', and 100' links. They go red, white, blue, yellow. The chain is 104' long so the last one lets me know when the splice...

Re: PS37 main fuel tank quantities (question)

You are right. Not only might the metal rod that has the cork on the end be bent a little this way or that, but you may have one of at least two gauges. Some are linear and some are not. Add to...

Re: windless on a 31

My Muir 800 gear reducer was a standard Bonfiglioli MVF049 60:1 reducer. In February 2010 it was cheaper to buy a replacement reducer from Imtra than from Bonfiglioli USA. It was not difficult to...

Re: Problem with pressure water system on PS 34

Yup. The juice comes into the breakers on the two brass strips (bus bars) that run down each row of breakers. If you follow the brass strips back up, you will find red wires that go back to the amp...

So, the pump motor doesn't run when turned on; motor is bad or no juice to the motor.

Re: Shades for Old Style Port Lights, PS 34

Lantau;

I like your solution. My roll up shades work fine, but it took quite a bit of time to make them. That makes them really not disposable, and they are really not cleanable. The one over...

Re: Bonding and Grounding of Underwater Metals

A description of the PSC 34 ground systems is in the PSC 34 Owner's Manual. I assume a description of the ground systems is also in the PSC 37 Owner's Manual.

Looking for something else, I ran across this. It seems a plastic bushing is normal (required) with a Michigan 2 blade 17" sailor propeller on a 1" shaft. The factory bore is 1-1/8".

Re: Bilge pump wiring

The bilge pump is shown in the 12v DC wiring diagram in section 10.6 of the PSC 34 owners manual. I wonder why they put it in one manual but not in another.

When we bought Irish Eyes in 2004 she had three propellers, all two blade, bronze, and solid. Installed on the boat was a 17x10 and in the locker were both a badly corroded 17x11 and a dirty 17x10. ...
