Re: Anchor chain for PS 37

Dear folks,

Re: Bronze portlights suddenly oxidize on interior

For me, this happens when I have small amounts of salt water coming in through the gaskets or because I didn't tighten down the dogs enough. Then of course I have to clean it all up and start again....

Re: Yankee on a Crealock 37

I replaced the Merriman Steering Pedestal on my 1986 PSC 37 with a tiller several years ago. I now need to get rid of 1) the emergency tiller and 2) the pedestal. The latter comes complete with the...

Re: leak from rudder stock

I had the same leaking on Kenalnu which is a 1985 PSC 37. Tightening the bolts on the stuffing box helped but they worked loose in a matter on months. Next time I did the job with a bucket of...

Re: Cathunk, gurgle, swoosh

Yes! Kenlanu makes exactly the same (and quite disconcerting) noises. The faster you are going forward the more the noise and the greater the "What the bleeep?!?!?!" As others have noted, going...
