Re: Airhead in PSC 37?

My holding tank is under the vee berth. I don't think it is the original one because a second pumpout deck fitting has been added. I'll be interested to see what I find when I remove the head.

Re: Airhead in PSC 37?

Re: Airhead in PSC 37?

Thanks for the replies. I am totally sold on the composting/dessicating idea. My holding tank has cracked at the top and I have tried epoxy repairs to no avail. I'm just sick of the whole mess,...

Has anyone put an Airhead in a 37'? The dimensions look tight but with a little finangeling it looks like it could work. Thinking of replacing the crank with a modified ratchet setup and changing...

Re: Diesel Fuel Tank Vent

Where are you? You can order tanks from PSC or you can have them made by a fabricator. There is a guy in Bellingham who makes nice tanks if you are in the PNW.

Re: Anyone have just 1 Bilge Pump?

I just added a second in my rear bilge. The current pump was no where near the low spot in the bilge and the boat would carry a good ten gallons before this pump would come on which it did. The...

Re: Diesel Fuel Tank Vent

I just replaced my vent hose and took all the dip out of the hose that I could so the air could travel freely. This was to make sure that my high racor filter readings were not caused by a trap of...

Re: High Pressure at Racor Filter

Re: Depression: cabin floor and me

Re: Depression: cabin floor and me

I only jacked it 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch. Remember my post had not completely failed as of yet but I'm sure it had come down some.

Re: Coskpit floor leak on 86 PSC 37

Re: Bilge improvment

There are no through hulls in that area so the only leak would be from hull damage. If that were to occur once the water got high enough it would flood into the rear bilge where the hoses to the...
