Re: Has anyone raised the boom on a PSC 37'?

Very good question! Relatedly, what height or angle is recommended for the boom in the first place and how much can one change this without recutting the main?

Re: Leaking hatches on PSC 37

pc37Howard,

Sounds like even the silicon used like a gasket under the lid (there is a small ~1/8-1/4" amount showing around the lid right now) needs to be removed in order to get a good...

Re: Leaking hatches on PSC 37

pc37Howard, thanks for the recommendations. We did a test and sure enough it looks like the forward water tank requires silicon around the lid edge.

Re: Singlehanding a PSC37???

Really can't imagine the work and cost of 2 boats! And most of the time, too much fun being on the same boat! I think I like taking turns single-handing better than that alternative.

Whisker pole recommended for PSC 37?

I just got back from Strickly Sail in Chicago. Attended a short-handed sailing seminar where the speaker recommended a Forespar whisker pole for downwind sailing. I was wondering if other PSC...
