cold weather & prop questions

A friend from the Chesapeake multihull group posed some questions about his Yahama 4 stroke, which I offered to post here. Anyone have some thoughts? ...... love the new engine and it ran nice all summer (idle was maybe a bit low), but we also sail in winter and are finding the engine unable to run ...

Re: Remove Mainsail

Hi Jim
On my boat we had a batt-slide system. The cars were inserted and taken off at the bottom of the slide.

That sounds like nonsense to me. I wouldn't pay any attention to it.

Wrap-around (upper salon) windows on PDQ 36

Does anyone know where I can get replacements for these windows?

Re: Generator

I have an Entec 4.2 kw. Runs everything.
It is a diesel and lives under the port side aft bunk.
Came when I ordered the boat.
I don't use it too much, but when you need it, it is great to have.
I have probably spent more time maintaining it than using it.

Re: Yamaha 9.9 Problem

Since you say the plugs are new, is the gap correct? Also, I had very similar symptoms and it turned out the oil had leaked out and the engine was prevented from operating above an idle by a safety. But you say the oil level is correct, so that is probably not it. Note that the green light under the...

The VERY good news was, nothing else was damaged and the boat is fully insured. Boat US just sent a ch...

Re: Newbie - What to Watch Out for

Obviously, I am biased, but in my opinion there is no comparison between the Gemini and the PDQ. The quality difference is evident everywhere you look. I chartered and looked hard at Gemini before I ordered my PDQ, because there was a significant price difference AND the factory was only 50 miles aw...

Re: Lazy jack lines?

My boom is 14ft, 4&1/4in from mast to end of boom.
The luff is 36ft, 1&1/2 inches
Mine is Hull # 96. I don't if your mast & boom are the same.
