Re: Kayak storage

if you have the self tacking jib - no problem - but with a genoa, i would think it would depend upon how far aft it comes when sheeted in tightly, how high it is cut and the angle of the sheets - it might be possible to place the mounts on stanchions further aft of the sheeting angle - good luck!

Re: Kayak storage

Check out Garhauer - they make stainless steel brackets that bolt to two stanchions and hold the kayak outboard. This company makes excellent, robust products.

Re: MYSTERY MAST WELDS - EXPLANATION PLEASE!

Thanks for your help. I'm not sure of the mast height. This is a boat I am seriously considering buying but these welds look peculiar to me. This type of welding just doesn't seem original by design. It is an Altair with the taller mast, but I am trying to determine if this is normal for the Altair ...

MYSTERY MAST WELDS - EXPLANATION PLEASE!

Hoping someone here can help me with this. This seam and spot welds are on a 1997 Altair 32. (my 1996 Classic does not have anything like this) Obviously mast has been sleeved. The seam around the mast is approximately 2 feet above the boom. Mast is made by Offshore Spars. I'm wondering if these wel...

Re: Bow Seats for your PDQ 36

Great upgrade!!! ....this is something I have on my Lagoon and thought would be great on the PDQ.

Any chance you might post a parts/supply list - especially for the fold up hardware you used?

Thanks,

Re: Speed Polar Plot for PDQ 32

thanks, drew ... i figured out the error in my thinking .... the mast on the classic is not 45 feet long, but rather 45 feet above the water; whereas the masthead height on the altair is probably 49 feet. as mine is a classic, i have altair "mast envy". hopefully when i get a square top ma...

Re: Speed Polar Plot for PDQ 32

drew -

it is my understanding that the classic (1996 and earlier) have the 45 foot mast
and the altair has the 49 foot mast.

what year is your boat?

thanks,

mike.

Re: Adequate Water Heater Capacity?

Thanks for your input, Drew. I didn't know the hot water had to be turned on full. If that is the case, I'm fairly confident that 1.6 gpm would be adequate although I think the factory fitted the boats originally with a higher output unit. I suppose I would have to turn down the water temp to avoid ...

Re: Adequate Water Heater Capacity?

Thanks, Mike. It doesn't appear that Bosch neither makes this model anymore, nor anything similar. All I could find were vented models.
Does yours have a pilot burning at all times?
