Re: No cooling water at telltale and running hot.

Re: A/c

Check out the Dometic SmartStart. This is a device that helps reduce the surge of A/C startup. After the initial surge, the Honda 2000 can easily handle the A/C.

Re: 1993 PDQ36 "Here's 2 Life" is SOLD

After half-heartedly trying to sell myself, I got serious after our Fall cruise, and listed her with a broker in Annapolis. She was under contract in less than 30 days.
It was a wonderful 17 years.

Re: Chain pipe cover

Thanks Sam, my cover is oval, but the chain exits through the curved end instead of the flat side. I've been looking for one for a while now. So far, no luck.

Chain pipe cover

Hi, The cover on the chain pipe got loose, and kicked overboard on my 1993 36'. I can't seem to find a replacement to fit. Do I have to make one?
Thanks for any help, Marc

Re: 1993 PDQ36 "Here's 2 Life" is for sale

Thanks. The best part of having the hardtop is being able to walk on it. Makes tying up the sail so much easier. We're very happy with it.
