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: Vetus Deck ventilator

We just swapped our dartagn1 vents because they seized up. The only size difference in the new ones was the diameter of the hole in the deck and the plastic trim ring lining the hole, which don't...

Re: leak from rudder stock

You can change the packing in the rudder packing gland with the boat in the water because the gland is above the waterline, unless you have the boat so heavily loaded astern that the boat is severely...

Re: Stereo woofer placement and size

I'm guessing that was a joke about putting the woofer with it's magnet next to the compass, right?

Re: oil and water gauges

Hi John,

Have a look at Brian & Marya Lipiec's website, specifically this page: Electrical Panel - Cruising Indigo (http://www.cruisingindigo.com/engine-panel.html)

It might be of some help....

Re: Rear oil seal

John,

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

John,

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: Rear oil seal

Hi John,

We had ours replaced in Port Angeles on the same transmission without pulling it for $65. It took the guy about 30 minutes. You will need a special wrench to get the trans coupling nut...

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: Congrats to Craig

I first met Craig in San Diego a couple of years ago before he sailed back home to Seattle by way of Hawaii. Then I bumped into him again by accident in a little cove at Isla Partida, 25 miles from...

Re: Congrats to Craig

Yes! Well done, Craig. A very fast passage for a boat of any size, let alone a 37 footer, especially with the doldrums for a hurdle. And SINGLEHANDED too!

Re: KISS Counterpoise installation on a 34

Brian,

I agree completely with you about the GAM.

Carl,

Please say hi to Brian for me. He also has a KISS. Carl brought it to Ubiquity when he visited us in Port Angeles while Brian was...

Re: KISS Counterpoise installation on a 34

Hi Brian,

I AM using the installed copper foil CP. I am not using the KISS at the moment. I have it aboard as a spare and for test purposes. Carl Nichols, the inventor of KISS, is a good friend...

Re: KISS Counterpoise installation on a 34

One other note. I ran the antenna wire from the tuner through another hole into the lazerette locker. Also stringing it underneath the deck, I attached it directly to the highest of the backstay...

Re: KISS Counterpoise installation on a 34

Here's one option.

Install the tuner where you are thinking of doing it (I did). Drill a hole near the tuner directly into the lazerette locker so that it comes out as high as possible above the...

Re: Choices...

Interestingly, Bill Crealock once told me that the 34 and 37 have the same interior volume. This was accomplished by giving the 34 fuller bow and stern sections and slightly greater deck freeboard....

Re: Pacific Seacraft forum

Brian,

I worried about the fuel getting stale too. So far, no problems (knock on teak). For the last seven years I've used a fuel additive which was recommended to me by a diesel guy with 40+...

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: PSC 34/37 How fast (or slow)

Hi Jay,

The boil down as I see it is this: ocean cruising is not about how fast we get there, it's about getting there in one piece, safe, rested and maybe even in a little style. And when we do...

Re: Trying to streamline storage and dishwashing

Cheoah,

I'd sure like to see a picture of that dish rack arrangement, if it's not too much trouble.
