Re: PSC34 Rudder Post

So, I did the video about how I get under the cockpit to work on the steering. I am 6' 1.5" and 68 years old. If I can do it, I think most people should be able to. Hope it helps. It's at,

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: Anchor chain for PS 37

We have 200 feet of 3/8" high test (G4) on our 34. Lots of miles. No problem. We carried 240 feet for six years but found we never got into the last 40 feet, so we got rid of it.

Re: Rear oil seal


Hopefully, you can borrow the wrench. There is a webpage with a good picture of a wrench a guy made for the nut. It is obviously not as strong as the tool from Yanmar, which is really heavy...

Re: Rear oil seal


The special wrench is part number 177099-09010. It's not cheap. Since I posted, I remembered that the O-ring was missing when the guy pulled the seal and he didn't see the purpose for it so...

Re: Swivel or Not

I don't know that the block needs to swivel when used as the staysail halyard, but we use it also for the whisker pole topping lift. When used in that capacity, it needs to swivel.

Re: Pacific Seacraft forum

Hi Brian,

I hate running the engine. It's a quirk of mine. The first boat I sailed to the South Pacific had no engine of any kind. I was in bliss: no noise, no smell, no maintenance and no...

Re: Trying to streamline storage and dishwashing

We've broken two glass french presses. We finally found a large stainless one from Starbucks. Four years and going strong. No filters, no mess.

Re: PSC With Tillers, where's your compass?

We attached ours to the sliding hatch cover. It also reads depth. It detaches from it's mount to stow below to prevent theft. I have also seen a compass attached to an arch built over the hatchway,...

Re: After dismasting...

I carry the same 24" bolt cutters that I used to re-rig with in the port cockpit locker. I can snip through our 9/32 wire in seconds. The 24" model does take a little muscle. If you can afford to...

Re: Removing Hot Water Heater

Hi there!
