Re: Engine Raw water intake strainer

Our 2006 PDQ operates in the Pacific Northwest. We encounter lots of eel grass and kelp. We seldom get even small bits in our raw water strainer. I know some other boats (sail & power) that consistently capture a lot. I do not know why.

Re: New Owner Questions

David, 1. Good luck on the water leak... the only thing I can think of is to check inside the STBD locker on the Flybridge (close to where the ice chest is located) to see if somehow water is getting into the vertical cable channel that goes straight down from the flybridge to the lower helm. 2. The...

Re: Fresh Water water flow PDQ 34

Has anyone found a replacement for the original "Waterguard" by Shurflo water filter unit that works? The bypass valve handle on my old Shurflo is nearly impossible to turn any more. The company that made our Shurflo model was apparently bought some years ago by Pentair (the water filter company). T...

Re: Transom shower..

Does anyone know the name and part # for the transom shower handle with the push button? Mine is broken. Is it a Scandic part 20140623?

Re: Flybridge seal with upper deck

We do several things to manage mold and crud build-up inside the upper helm console. Since we store seat cushions and canvas covers inside that huge cavern, I've tried caulking the gap between the non-skid deck and the cabinet from the outside and the inside. That helps, but the movement of the helm...

2006 PDQ 34' Owners Manual

I have somehow lost my own PDF copy of our original boat manual. I have the hard copy manual, but am looking for the scanned PDF file copy of it. Does anyone have a PDF file of this manual?

Re: Sleeping in the salon?

Bill, I'll add that it REALLY made a difference when we had the cushions upgraded last year to a higher quality, denser foam. It is much more comfortable sitting at the salon table. The denser foam especially helps on the lower helm seat... rather than raise the entire seat to improve visibility, th...

Re: Sleeping in the salon?

Bill, our salon bed works great. It did take improving the quality of the foam (made it denser) in the seat cushions and the two cushions used to cover the table portion of the bed. I have uploaded 2 pictures. Let me know if you don't see them and I'll send them to you.

Re: Transom shower..

That's right... it's a very challenging place to get to, especially if you are a bigger person. The aft engine compartment firewall should lift straight UP and out. It's not heavy. Then, as Duetto suggested, put a towel or foam pad on top of the hot water tank (be sure the tank is NOT hot) and do it...

Re: Webasto Water Tank

Guys, bear in mind our PDQ is home based in Bellingham, WA -- the Pacific Northwest. We're the last city before you cross the border into Vancouver, BC. It's a lot cooler and wetter here than where you guys live. We need heat and hot water. You'll laugh when I tell you people here think its a major ...

Re: Our PDQ Enhancements blog page

Nice blog, Russ. We have the same year PDQ and have also made a bunch of "enhancements"... but don't have a blog. I tend to share some of them here. Maybe a blog like yours some day.
