Re: PSC 37 staysail sheet rigging options?

Hi,

I added a staysail setup a couple of years ago. Not saying it is the best way, but it is working for us.
I added two tracks on the cabin top , fore and aft not angled, mostly because it was...

Re: Genoa Tracks on Cap Rail

By the way we were experiencing leaks in the area, even in rain. So we pulled the bolts and resealed them from the top with sikaflex.

The leaks are gone, which is a relief as we worried it was a...

Re: Any advice for a circumnavigation

Sounds great, I primarily went to Beta as the 1st port of call as the install should be most similar, but it is great to hear that they are easy to maintain too!

When you installed it did you...

Re: New Generation Anchor on the 37

Hey,
Sorry to bump this but I verified which anchor we have, and thought I'd add to the virtual knowledge base.
It is a Rocna original 25kg and it fits perfectly own the rollers of our 37.

Hi,
I do have a Monitor - I think my Crealock is the 'circumnavigation package' with the lines led aft, though interestingly it was sloop rigged before I added a staysail.

Hi,
I can't remember the hull number but she is a 1981, with the one piece floor and coach bolts.


Another solution might be those flat stainless hatch latches with the flip-up handles you...

Re: Fasteners holding down the cockpit sole

Looks perfect, thanks. The large size of the nuts should stop hurnint feet, which was what I didn't understand..
If I can't find these or similar locally I'll ask PSC.

One of the things I want to do in my tiller steered 37 is to make it so that I can get the cockpit sole up easily to access the engine. I know later boats have a two part floor - can someone...

Re: Any advice for a circumnavigation

It is good, but I had to replace the two middle chain plates as they were cracking, and had spares for the rest made, which I will fit.
The existing rigging is 7mm or 9/32 except for the forestay,...

Hi,
We tack through about 100 degrees in nice conditions on the ocean. I find it best to bear off a bit to build speed and when the lift from the keel is established then bear up. The staysail...

Hi all,
Well, I moved it forward quite a way, to about 5- 6 inches rake. We still have a little weather helm as desired, but I think it is much better. I moved about 4 inches of stay length to the...

Mast rake on a PSC 37

I think my mast is raked too far back. Can someone with a happily tuned rig please hang off their main halyard and see how far back from the gooseneck it comes?

When I do it it is about 20...
