PSC31 Hinei'ni-hard work to get a photo

Thought I'd share the only known photo of Hinei'ni on the hook. I wanted to see if I could deploy my inflatable dink singlehandedly yesterday, easily done from the bow with rechargeable 12v pump,...

37 for a 31

Nah, that's from the fall so I figured it's worth a shot. If you don't ask, you don't get, I always say.

Port light screens 34 PSC

Hi all:

I ordered a set of screens from John for my '31. They were too big with the rubber gasket he supplies. I punched my thumb through a couple of them trying to shove them in. John was very...

Gozzard 31 vs Pacific Seacraft 31?

I have a PSC31 with a cutter rig, i.e. a high cut Yankee and a staysail. This week, in anticipation of really light winds on the Chesapeake, I swapped out the Yankee for a 130 Genoa that the prior...

Re: Otter problem, help!

Not quite an otter problem, but check out "Dottie", who decided to lay three eggs in a coil of rope at my bow last year. Obviously, I need to get out on the water more, if my boat is the quietest...

Re: Quantity and storage for anchor chain for a Pacific Seacraft 31

Does anyone have a second anchor on the bow? if so, what length chain and rode do you have for that one? Both of Hinei'ni's anchors have chains and rode, but I haven't gotten up the energy to drop...

downwind sail for PSC31

Okapi, thanks for the feedback. What point of sail are you on when you raise the sail, and then when you pull up the sock? Seems like it would be safest to point into the wind but is bearing off hard...

downwind sail for PSC31

Marc, I checked today and I do have a separate block for the spinnaker halyard. The next question will be whether to haul the asym up from the base of the mast (hinei'ni does not have a winch on the...

Re: downwind sail for PSC31

"This is basically a spinnaker halyard problem. You will have it with any spinnaker arrangement unless you are going to use the same halyard for your genoa and spinnaker.

The normal solution is to...

downwind sail for PSC31

Wouldn't I need to either extend the top of the mast too or lower the other halyards (not happening) to accommodate another furler?

downwind sail for PSC31

I think we've ditched the idea of a furling asymmetric, though that was in my original post. Someone told me that to add a third furler up front, you have to move the other two furling units back in...

Re: downwind sail for PSC31

downwind sail for PSC31

Do you run all lines aft, including the halyard? If so, you must sail with the sail hanging down to the deck. Or do you run forward to rig for the down wind and then pack it away for upwind work?

Related to this, Clue's little flag halyard is wrapped around the sheave (pulley) on the spreader... Short of bumming a lift from a passing bucket truck, any ideas in how to free the halyard? There...
