Re: Remove bilge float switch over winter

Perhaps try one of the auto pumps that comes on every couple of minutes to "test" for water. I've used one the last two years during the winter and it works well. For summer I go back to adiaphram...

Re: Genoa track on 37

It doesn't look like it's the screws for the end cap that is leaking. (that end cap is missing) Very wet around the forward most thru bolt, I'm reasonably certain that is where it's leaking. It...

Genoa track on 37

We started our de-winterization of Elnora and noticed a slight drip of water on the starboard settee. The "headliner" just above the starboard bookcase area was wet so we pulled it off and it the...

Re: Ya gotta laugh.

If my pickup burned diesel and I could drive it down the float to the boat that might have been an option. :)

Re: Ya gotta laugh.

There is a hardware store right in our harbor. Regardless of how many spares I have on the boat if I need 4 screws I'll only have 3. I consider it my cardio training! :)

Ya gotta laugh.

A couple weeks ago I made the 150 mile drive to the boat planning to decant the remaining fuel in the keel tank then remove the tank and bring it home for cleaning and inspection. Once on the boat I...

Re: PS37 genoa -- what size?

The only sail I've ever bought was the staysail I bought from Ullman through Pacific Seacraft. I have to say that I was impressed with their customer service.

When I got the furled kit and...

Volume of returned fuel?

I have a Yanmar 4JH2E. Curious if anyone knows how much fuel is returned to the tank? (And if anyone answers "all of the excess" I'll hunt you down and wind your furler backwards! :) )

The reason...

Re: PS37 genoa -- what size?

My Genoa is a "130" and not Yankee cut, my 37 is cutter rigged with the staysail on a furler, both headsails have foam luffs. I haven't had any issues tacking. Local winds usually 16-20 knots,...

Re: Thought there was something strange..

On my boat it's a single cup hot water maker than runs off the inverter. Turn it on while AP steering and it's an immediate turn of about 65 degrees --- which is correct when it's switched off.

Re: Confession time...

My runners are made with dyneema (Amsteel Blue) for the standing part. Much, much lighter than wire.

Re: Confession time...

My Crealock 37 has running backs but I am far from an expert.

According to Thumper at PSC I really don't have to use the runners unless in heavy weather. Mine attach to substantial pad eyes along...

Re: Yanmar 3GM 30 Cooling Water Mystery

I also thought of this. Something that idle flow doesn't more, higher rate flow moves it blocking flow somewhere. Admittedly a bit of a long shot.

Odd issue you're having. Good luck.
