Re: 34 vs 37

My interior volume statement was based on information I received during a visit to the factory. I think Thumper knows more about these boats than most.

As for the Scheel Keel. I did not realize...

Re: PSC34 Rudder Post

Thanks for walking us through your dilemma. I too have a drip that eventually is going to have to have my undivided attention. I am also a pretty big fellow and the thoughts of climbing back there...

Re: 34 vs 37

Reasons we bought a 34 instead of a 37.

1. Maintenance costs are lower on 34....simple math each haul out is by the foot, you need more bottom paint, you need more varnish, you need more...

Re: Deck locker for PS37

I agree with Dave, a locker would put too much weight on the foredeck. We use a canvas bag near the mast crutches to put snubbing lines in. Plus you would really hamper movement on the deck when...

Re: Deck core near mast

Forgot to post about your mast question. Most of the PSC's are outfitted with Le Fiel masts. They are still in business in California. You may want to consider going with the traditional no n...

Re: Deck core near mast

Thumper at the factory is a wealth of knowledge. He was instrumental in my decision to buy a PSC 34 (89)....which my wife and I absolutely love. We have purchased hardware from the factory (Chain...

Re: Florida anchoring restrictions survey

Guess you believe every thing you read on the internet. That's hilarious.

In every argument you have extremists. We just need to find a middle ground on this issue so the waterways in the...

Re: Florida anchoring restrictions survey

First of all the highway analogy is weak at best. FYI, there is a governmental process where citizens can be heard regarding the regulation of speed on all roadways.

Seems we always fall back...

Re: Florida anchoring restrictions survey

"It's my right!" You hear that all the time. What those with rights often forget is that others have rights too and that when you impinge upon their rights you are wrong. The problem with this...

Re: Florida anchoring restrictions survey

The derelict vessel issue is the key to the entire issue. I don't think too many people mind seeing a cruising sailor stop for the night or a couple of days as they travel. The rub occurs when some...

Re: Boat Loan

If you think living on a boat will be cheaper than living ashore, you may want to sharpen your pencil and refigure your calculations. Homes appreciate (generally) boats depreciate (always). Enough...

Re: Fuel Tank

Do you PSC owners just love/need to spend thousands on everything? Why not use off the shelf tanks? Can the fit and build be that strange you can't use "standard"?


Denise, Perhaps you don't...

Re: Fuel Tank

Re: Fuel Tank

The fuel tank on the PSC 34 was designed to be in the bilge centerline perfectly centered above the keel. This adds a bit to the ballast and uses space that may not be used otherwise. As for the...

Fuel Tank

I pulled the fuel tank out of Hush last week. She has the shoal keel so the tank is a bit different than the regular. Anyway, I noticed like many on the forum that the tank was coated in what...

Re: Rudder Post Access Hatch

Now I am really going to have to approach the rudder access hatch project seriously. I on a recent 150 mile trip that rudder packing is leaking into the bilge. If I cut this access, will I be able...

Re: leak from rudder stock

Rule 1: The larger vessel (cargo ship) will crush you smaller vessel as you quote nav regs. On the way to the bottom perhaps you can get a lawyer and sue.
