Re: Anchor chain for PS 37

I use a 3 year old Lewmar H2 with gypsy and drum. It has a remote and a manual reversion kit. It's the most used and best investment yet. I didn't notice too much weight in the bow until I had 100...

Re: Got the air bleed blues

I think if you have bled the high pressure fuel pump it will take care of the injectors. If you have been cranking the engine over with the raw water intake open you may have already got water in the...

Re: The compass ... old hat?

The compass is always part of my continuous cross check. It is most likely the most reliable tool on the boat. After a lightning strike takes out all the toys it is nice to know that DR( time and...

Re: Anybody have an engine monkey I could use?

I had the same problem when I refit Coorie Doon 2 years ago. I bit the bullet and had the yard drop the rudder and we fitted new bearings/ seals including the big bronze one on the skeg. I am hoping...

Re: Cockpit Lazarette Repair

That's one I havn't heard of in a PSC. I had a similar bit of rot in a C&C years ago that started around the hinges and it had gotten a bit spongy. I dug out the spongy stuff near the hinges and back...

Re: Dodger frame

On Coorie Doon when I had a Bimini built we built it with more strength and frames on top for solar. To improve visibility at the helm we raised the Bim above the dodger and put zippers on the bim...

Re: Midship Cleats...

Re: 3JH2E Cruising RPM

I normally cruise at about 5 and 1/2 knots, which equates to 2100 RPM with a 3 bladed max prop. The pitch is set so I can get 3250 RPM wide open for about 7 knots. There has been discussion on some...

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

Once you start raising the boom it depends on how much mast you have up top that you are not already using. If you just angle the boom up without cutting the sail you will have sail shape problems. ...
