Re: Pump for emptying cooler

I found a plastic one and a brass one at Hamilton Marine. I replaced with the brass one since the first brass one lasted 20 years.

Re: Propeller cage

Used 1/2 inch non bendy copper tubing. Flattened the ends and bolted them into the keel and the skeg. Added another zink at the keel end.:)

Re: Propeller cage

I have a length of copper tubing going from the keel to the skeg. So far it has kept lobster gear out of the prop .:)

Re: Liveaborders that never leave the slip? I don't get it. Help!

Same here Jack, I have ridden motorcycles for 50 years and been all over the country but on a nice summer day I might rather sail. It is a good problem to have and at my age I had better start...

Re: 34 vs 37

Sounds like you need to crawl aboard each size, Tinpusher. As a pilot for 40 years I have spoken with a few of you folks. All good information. I think I read somewhere that Bill C designed the 34...

Re: Anchor chain for PS 37

Coorie Doon is moored in Belfast. I love Bucks. She is on the hard in Winterport for the winter. I believe "Cookie" , another PSC 34, is one of your neighbors at Bucks. I'll keep an eye out for...

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: Crealock-34 head

My Raritan compact works great but when the guts of my Groco come back from overhaul this week I will most likely throw it back in soon. It just fits better.:)

Re: Miscellaneous Questions - Newbie Owner 31

As for the clanking under power, check the prop for any side play and while down there see if there is any wiggle in the rudder. Enjoy your new boat.:)

Re: Crealock-34 head

Re: PSC 37 staysail sheet rigging options?

Grant, it is the same on my 34, if I run the sheets out side the shroud then I can't go to windward without rubbing, if I run them inside and then ease the sheets they rub inside. I put plastic snap...

Re: organizing bitter ends of sheets and halyards

There are no dumb questions. The only lines I have on the cabin top as you described are the reefing lines, the main sheet, and the main sheet traveller lines. The traveller lines are short enough...

Re: Crealock-34 head

Just heard that Groco heads are back ordered for a year. Seems like production problems. They must have moved their production to China.:eek:

Re: Cathunk, gurgle, swoosh

When I initially put my 3 blade max prop in reverse while moving forward if above 1200 RPM it initially makes those funny noises as you describe. It is normal but it sounds quite dis functional.:)

Re: AIS / Marine Traffic

Re: AIS / Marine Traffic

Talked to an engineer at Si-tex. Seems like you need an SWR on your antenna that is less than 5 to 1. Interference from metal near the antenna ( like on the pushpit)is a no no also. I hooked up to...
