Re: PSC34 Rudder Post

PB Blaster (and also time, and maybe heat) is pure magic. I have had ~50% success with lost causes by wrapping cotton string around the bolt right at the joint, periodically wetting it down with PB...

Re: PSC34 Rudder Post

A straightforward fix, but maybe not simple. The only real variable is that pesky drive wheel, namely the through bolt. It has a tendency to get bent when the four clamping bolts are not tightened...

Re: PSC34 Rudder Post

Your drive wheel is a lot lower than on our 34. We can tighten the packing gland or replace packing without raising the drive wheel. Different pedestal steering brand/model maybe. To tighten or...

Re: Snubber thoughts

This fall in Port Washington, our dinghy painter picked up a huge amount of growth, much more than the anchorages we usually visit. That place really grows things fast.

So I tied a light bungie...

Re: Cockpit Lazarette Repair

I would concentrate on the area immediate to the hinges. It has to be the point where water entered. If you can stand on the rest, let it ride...spend money on other things or if you're ADD like me...

Re: Cockpit Lazarette Repair

The core is most likely rotten to the core. LOL.
I'm thinking the best you can do without removing all the core and is cut away the (I'm guessing) plywood core to at least a 2" margin around the...

Re: Cockpit Lazarette Repair

That's one I havn't heard of in a PSC. I had a similar bit of rot in a C&C years ago that started around the hinges and it had gotten a bit spongy. I dug out the spongy stuff near the hinges and back...

Re: Homemade composting head

Composting heads only partially compost at best. Your last "deposit" is certainly not composted at all. Ventilation is important, as oceangirl's husband correctly identifies the difference between...

Re: Happy New Year from Jo Beth - and a Refit Update

I can't recall which Bomar hatch it is - it's been about 8 years - but it is a Bomar. I think they are the Cast Series 100 hatch. (I was incorrect when I said they were plastic in my earlier post -...

Re: Staining birch to match interior PCS

Ocean Girl,
Sorry to hear that it didn't come out as planned. I know the feeling after spending hundreds of hours on a project, only for it to not come out as envisioned. Sometimes you can fix or...

Oceangirl,
Some teak darkens with age, but some like our boat turns more reddish. When we bought some Alpenglow lights we initially bought the teak versions and had to return it because it did not...

Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

We really appreciate the support of all sailors. It is quite possible the sailors are alive on an upright Nina. Part of their longevity may be due in part to the stores on the Nina. However, John...

Re: Staining birch to match interior PCS

If you have off-cuts of the material, you might try different combinations of stains to see what works best for your application. Remember, also, that close is often good enough for everyone but the...

Re: Staining birch to match interior PCS

Personal opinion (Your mileage may vary)
In an application where you are attempting to match stain color and depth an oil based wiping stain is your best bet.. Colors may be mixed to achieve your...

Re: Staining birch to match interior PCS

Is it a teak interior you are trying to match? Mahogany?

I'm not a big fan of minwax's products; especially their Polystain stuff.
Their stains I rate as fair to middling.

Re: Gelcoat match 1989 PSC 34 #142

Check and see if you have a fiberglass coating type store in your area. They may have color samples that you take to the boat and match up. If they don't, you may be able to take a part off the boat...
