Your email bounced. Is it perhaps "gmail" and not "mail"?

Re: Source for cockpit locker hinge

Thanks James.

The closest I found was from a UK site called Sheridan Marine. They look close but the holes probably won't line up so I will need to do some drilling.

Source for cockpit locker hinge

Does anyone know a source for these hinges? This is off the cockpit locker that enclose the outboards in the 32 classic, or in my case, the batteries in my LRC.

source for bow pulpits?

For some reason, my PDQ32 LRC did not have bow pulpits when I bought her. I think they are an important safety feature and I would like to add them. Does anyone know of a source where I might be able to get some specifically made for the PDQ 32?

Re: What are these D-rings on the bow?

I don't have them on my 32. Perhaps they are for attaching guy lines for a bowsprit?

I'm curious why you don't use it while at anchor? Is it just too much of pain to put up and take down?

Re: Rear cockpit enclosure for PDQ 32?

Drew I hear you about compromising sailing ability. Unless it was really nasty, I probably would not be using it while underway, and I would try to avoid sailing on those days anyway. What I found on my first year on Terrapin, was that at anchor on a rainy day, often it was windy enough to blow rain...

Re: Rear cockpit enclosure for PDQ 32?

Thanks, that helps a lot. I like the way it is angled back to the edge of the raised deck area. This means you can open the top hatch as well as the cockpit hatch in the stateroom when it is raining, big advantage IMO. I am hoping to design my install to allow me to roll up sections when sailing to ...

Re: 36 LRC battery wiring?

On the 32 LRC both sets of batteries are in the cockpit lockers where the outboards would be in the Classic. My starting batteries are on the port side and the house bank is on the starboard side, so it is easy to run the jumper cables across the cockpit. Terrapin is on the hard all summer long due ...

Rear cockpit enclosure for PDQ 32?

I'm planning on having a local canvas shop custom make a rear cockpit enclosure but I would love to see how others are designed. Does anyone have pictures of their enclosures?

Re: 36 LRC battery wiring?

Hey Chicagocat I have a 32LRC but I believe my batteries are wired the same way: 2 starting batteries in the port cockpit locker with not one, but two 1-2-Both switches! 4 6V golf cart batteries in starboard locker for house bank with their own 1-2-Both switch. The two banks are separate: port alt c...

Re: Do you have an adjustable forestay?

Well, I didn't watch when they (Mack Sails) removed the old furler, but I take their word for it that there wasn't one. The new furler they put on is a Harken ESP1. You can install it without a turnbuckle or with an adapter that allows the turnbuckle to be accessed under the furler. They installed i...

Re: Watermaker for a 32?

My port cockpit lazerette has 2 starting batteries, the house bank is in the starboard lazerette. Although it is in a relatively protected cockpit, it is still more exposed to the elements and possible corrosion. I would be concerned about mounting the watermaker there. I was also thinking of locati...

Watermaker for a 32?

I'm considering a watermaker, specifically the Spectra Ventura 200T for my 32. I'm wondering if anyone here has installed one and where they installed the various components?

Re: PDQ32+

Amytom I am thinking of adding an arch to my 32. It currently has a wind gen on a pole and a solar panel just above the davits. Unfortunately, the PO used galvanized steel pipe for the pole and painted it. The paint is peeling and I'm sure it weighs a ton. I'm thinking of removing the pole and putti...
