Re: Hydraulic steering

Re: Finally got a PDQ 34

hi gerry,

welcome aboard.

i think magic (formerly beach magic) is really a 2004 model year boat. as i recall it has the newer flybridge and separate hull/shower but still has the u-shaped dinette and small galley.

Re: Distribution Panel breaker for SSB

hi,

we have an early boat so yours maybe different. on ours flybridge supply supplies all power to the flybridge which may or may not be mostly instruments. you can certainly add another breaker to the panel if you have a spare slot, it's just snaking the wire to where you need it.
