Re: Electric Windlass preferances

The caprail route should not be too bad. I've replaced the washdown pump hose which ran from the pump under the sink to a male hose fitting on the bow. It was an easy shot. My guess is that the...

Re: Electric Windlass preferances

We have a now discontinued bronze Muir 800 with a 1000W 12V motor. The vertical windlass has both a capstan and gypsy. The motor is horizontal just aft of the starboard hawse hole and does not...

Oops. We left St Augustine at 10am on Thursday when the rain stopped. A car would have been great. I walked in the drizzle the 4 miles out and back from Home Depot, Radio Shack, Target, West...

Re: Yanmar 3HM35F Dipstick

I have two Yanmar books.

The first is "Yanmar Diesel Engine Operation Manual Pub# AOB5004". On page 4 it gives for the 3HM35F engine, "Lubricating oil capacity (rake angle 8°), Total, liter...

Re: Varnishing the interior

The last PSC 34 price list I have (2005) lists "Teak interior cabin house sides $690.00". White is the cheap option.

Re: Yanmar 3HM35F Dipstick

I've overfilled an engine as well. It nearly broke my cheapskate heart to pump out oil I had just added.

My stopper had slid up the dipstick a couple of inches and had been there for some time. ...

Re: Yanmar 3HM35F Dipstick

I don't know. My guess is not, because there are different dipsticks in the 3GM and 3HM engines and because it took Jordan a while to remember that the 3HM dipstick was made of wire that is...

Re: Packing gland question

In the PSC 34 owners manual on the page with the shaft sizes for the boats (maybe p.46), it says, 'Note: Pkg flax size 3/16" '.

Re: PSC34 Rudder Post

If the shaft side of the coupling won't press off in the boat, you are doomed.

This fall I needed to replace my shaft as we found it had worn away in the area of the cutless bearing. The shaft...

Re: 34 vs 37

I agree. Our 34 cruises for months with two, sleeps four for a week, sits six for dinner, and will serve eight for drinks. That is what fits, and that is the way we have used the boat since buying...

Re: Yacht legs (beaching legs) for PS37/Crealock 37

Re: 34 vs 37

The side decks of the 34 are wider than those of the 37. For you all who varnish, you can sit on the 34 decks while you work. For those who carry jugs on deck, you can walk by the jugs on a 34.

Re: Varnish removal: should I, could I?

Our boat isn't a 2004 boat. That is when we bought it. It is a 1988 model. I think the exterior teak had been varnished at one time because there is varnish still on the backs of the boards on the...

Re: Varnish removal: should I, could I?

We bought our Crealock 34 in 2004. All the teak was bare. We said that the first thing we planned to do was sand and varnish all the beautiful teak.

Well.... It has not happened yet. Instead...
