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

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