Re: I hate boats...

I'm happy the insurance decided to cover the full amount - they seem to be a decent company to do business with. Excellent news for MedSailor.

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the detailed description - that's very helpful. In my case, that panel has the engine instruments. I was hoping to avoid taking it out as it is caulked in place, but it looks...

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

Bill,

Thanks for the update and sorry the plan didn't work out. Did you find an easy way to get to the valve?

Thanks,
Joost

Re: Marine Surveyor Marion, MA

I used William Coble (cobleboatsurveys@cox.net) a couple of years ago when I got the PSC 34 in South Dartmouth. He's located in RI, I believe. He spent the entire day going through the boat and...

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

Fortunately the exhaust outlet is well above the waterline. I don't know about the elbow, but I suspect it is as well. If the anti-syphon valve fails, wouldn't it be possible to start a syphon with...

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

When I haul the boat for the winter, I usually tape up any exposed vents to prevent insects from getting in there. I feel for you, MedSailor, it's unfortunate that such a small insect caused so much...

Re: Raw water anti-syphon valve

Bill,

I even removed the little door next to the companion way, but just barely managed to touch the valve. Not easily accessible, and I don't really want to remove the instrument panel on a...

Raw water anti-syphon valve

I've been following MedSailor's recent travails with his engine (see: I hate boats thread) and one of the things that came up that may have caused his engine to fail was a clogged anti-syphon vent....

Re: Look for new sailboat under 25 ft.

We had a Precision 23 until recently. It's a fun boat to sail and reasonably well built. We did a number of short cruises with it. At the end of the season, you can haul it out and trailer it.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Paulo, I think we spent time in some of the same places this summer - the eastern Med is wonderful.

Re: Precision Sails or North Direct.....

I ordered a main sail from them last year and am quite happy with how things turned out. The sail is well made and was delivered within the time frame we had discussed.

Re: minor damage to teak toe rail

Thanks for the comments and for the link. It's too deep to be sweated out, so I was planning to cut a piece of teak to the right size, shape it, and glue it in place, fill up the gaps with filler. I...

minor damage to teak toe rail

Just came back from a nice day sail when I noticed some minor damage to one of teak toe rails - something must have hit the boat, taking out a piece of teak about 2-3 inches long and leaving a half...

Re: PacificSeacraftOwners.org

I tried to join months ago and had the same experience. That forum isn't very active as far as I can tell. The SailNet PSC forum is quite active and a good place to get information.

Re: Picking up a mooring single handed

Bow - I motor up to the mooring, put the engine in neutral a short distance from the mooring, walk to the bow and use the boat hook to pick up the pendant.

Re: Dismasted in the Aegean - lessons to learn

That was exactly my reading of the photograph as well. It is a bit tricky because the image wasn't taken under the best of conditions, but the striations do look like fatigue.

When I talked to PSC about the packing gland they recommended to haul the boat - I suppose they're playing it safe. On the other hand, David has done it twice with the boat in the water.

Re: leak from rudder stock

Sounds like the same issue - it happens when motor sailing. I had the yard seal off the bulkhead between the locker and the rest of the boat. Apparently they dumped a few buckets of water into the...
