Re: Steering Fluid Reservoir

That's my understanding too. We had an issue with a leak in the line at the lower helm last year. Our service tech repaired the leak at the lower helm and filled the reservoir at the upper helm.

Re: Boat Maintenance Log

The usual topics for a boat log - Date, Engine Hours, Cost, Description. Obviously, I can recreate this in a notebook. I was wondering if anyone has seen a more sophisticated version that includes reminders for periodic engine or transmission maintenance. I think I'll just do it electronically so it...

Boat Maintenance Log

Do you have a boat maintenance log? I’m looking for an iOS app or at least a good template that would work in Excel.

Re: Move Water Heater

IF your objective is to get hot water to the shower faster, then I'd say go for it... as long as you are willing to give up the storage space in the starboard locker. However, IF your objective is to rebalance your boat so it runs with less "squating" at higher speeds, I don't think shifti...

Re: Ultra leather fabric color

RB,

We're not doing the BLUE color. Our 2006 has the TAN color. I'm just looking for info on the faux leather fabric. Ours has held up beautifully.

Re: iPad navigation program

Terry, Did you mean "iSail GPS" for $7.99 at the Apple App Store? It gets great reviews and is certainly inexpensive. I don't mean to put it down, however, I have it and I much prefer Navionics. I find Navionics to be much easier to use, much faster and easier to create a track without nee...

Re: Ultra leather fabric color

Good question. We too are thinking about having our seat cushions on our 2006 PDQ reupholstered. We don't have an answer to your question, but would definitely like to know.

Re: Heating Fresh Water

This did get resolved. I took pictures of the heat exchange hose loop between the engine and the hot water tank and sent them to our maint. guy. He installed the new water tank without any issues. It was nice to help him sort our his "confusion". Thanks for thinking about it.

Re: Fore / Aft Boat Balance

Good questions... couple of responses... To keep this topic in context, we replaced our 4 wetcell house batteries with 4 heavy AGM's because our objective was to: a) have enough battery capacity to support up to 3 days at anchor without any need to start an engine to recharge (we do not have a gense...

Re: Fore / Aft Boat Balance

Duane,

That's helpful. As of now, our boat is definitely bow LIGHT even with full water and fuel tanks. I think I need to add some of that "ballast" chain back to get to at least level or slightly bow HEAVY with full tanks. I plan to call Dick and discuss this with him.

Fore / Aft Boat Balance

My question is: When your aux. fuel, water and holding tanks are empty, what does your boat's profile look like at the water line? Is it balanced Fore to Aft on the waterline? Or is it stern heavy with the bow riding visibly higher? What does the profile look like when your fuel, water and holding t...

Re: dinette reading lights?

John, I can send you a ZIP file with our entire original PDQ manual including the schematic charts. However, the file is too large to send via this forum. If you send me your email address, I will send you a link to a site where you can download the file. I'll send you a Private message to do this.
