After a few months of using our Leisure Furl boom, I can give a report of first-hand experience. We like it very much. For us, it simplifies sailing makes it considerable safer. I cannot speak about...

I've removed the head a couple of times from QuanYin (PS 40 #33), and it is installed with lag bolts. No problems.

Another very fine loft is Schattauer Sails in Seattle. They made sails for our 34, and for the first time we just raised the new mainsail that they made for the Leisure Furl on our 40. Beautifu and...

We are having a Leisure Furl installed on or boat. We had a Dutchman, and it was okay, but the boom furler offers several important advantages. I am sure that there are good mast furlers out there,...

Fwiw

We were quite pleased with the hard dodger that Jacques and Bea of Tartarooga put on our 37. There is a picture of the of it on their website. If one clicks upon the "contact us" link, our former...

Update

I have spoken with two owners of Leisure Furl units. One has a J 46, and the other has a PS 40. Both are very happy with them. Both men are in their sixties, as am I, and they feel that the their...

Thank you for your replies. You've given me pause and the opportunity for more research. I have spoken with one of our area's premier sail makers, and he is decidedly positive about the unit in terms...

boom furling

Has anyone considered a boom furling unit on their PS? We are seriously looking into a Leisurefurl for our PS 40. Safety and convenience are the two main advantages that we are weighing, and after...

some pics of a radar pole

This is on a 40, but a 37 would be very similar. Sorry for the quality; I took them with my phone.
Again, we like the set up, but I'm sure there are better options. The outboard is quite heavy, and...

You betcha, Seacurves. I think the our pole and arm was made by Seaview. I'll be up at the boat this week, and I'll try to remember to take some pics.

We sold the boat about three years ago, so this is from my memory banks which are not as functional as they should be. There was a teak "cup" epoxied to the inside of the hull. The bottom of the pole...

this is a possibility

If I was successful in posting the picture, this may be what you describe. It's a powder coated aluminum pole (3 inch diameter, I believe) with an Edson arm for lifting the outboard. In addition to...

Thanks to both of you for the ideas. I am wondering if the slow filling might be due to the long run of the vent. It goes all the way to the stern. Someone suggested creating a new vent to the...

stinky storage

Our PS 40 has a strong chemical smell in the aft storage area under the port settee. It is the area through which both the fill hose and fuel vent hose run. I don't think the smell is diesel, but it...

We had an Edson on our 34, and now have a Seaview unit on our 40. As I recall, the Edson was much pricier. We love the outboard lift on both of them.

I tried to post the Seaview link, but the...

We have a Rocna 25 on our PS40. The anchor has worked well, and we've had no problems. My main concern is that it doesn't readily allow having our CQR 45 in tandem on the bow.

Using Bob Cross's excellent description, we replaced all of our hoses to and from our holding tank. We have hull 33 ('99), so I suspect it's the same layout as yours. I removed the cabinet doors...
