Re: Engine and Power Tilt Trouble

Mine is a blade style 10 amp mini fuse. It's under the engine cowl forward of the flywheel inside a little plastic box with a top that pulls off. There is a slot for the fuse and an extra slot for a spare.

Re: Engine and Power Tilt Trouble

I'm a dummy. It was a blown fuse. I should have checked it sooner. :)

Thanks amytom.

Engine and Power Tilt Trouble

I'm having trouble with my port engine (T9.9GPXR; 2008). We took the boat out today to watch the Falcon Heavy launch and all went fine on the way out. The launch and landings were great! When we tried to leave the port engine wouldn't start and the power trim wouldn't operate; no noise from either. ...

Re: mainsail

I replaced the sails on my 36 a couple months back and went with Mack Sails. Cost was $4700 for main ($2700) and genoa ($2000). The main is a loose footed full batten 2 reef main in 8.62 high aspect Dacron. The genoa is 135% 7.7 oz marblehead with sunbrella sun cover and foam luff. The mainsail came...

Re: iPad navigation program

Plan2Nav will overlay ActiveCaptain but only on Android; it is currently not supported on iOS. I mainly use it for trip planning and as a backup.

Re: swimladder replacement

I went with a 4" non-skid deck plate on the second step up. I can reach the inside of the chainplates, ladder, and handrail this way.

Re: swimladder replacement

Unfortunately I can't answer your question. I know my ladder is not original and I can see where the old mount holes were filled in as they must not have matched the new ladder brackets. I just replaced my backstay chainplates and the washers/nuts were not glassed in. This required me to install a 4...

Re: Backstay chainplate replacement

I finally got around to replacing my backstay chainplates. A local rigger inspected my boat and was in agreement that only the backstay chainplates needed replaced. He also felt these were the original chainplates. It was $300 in total for the inspection and a set of custom made chainplates. I spent...

Re: Backstay chainplate replacement

Has anyone replaced their backstay chainplate? If so, how easy was removing and replacing the nuts in the watertight compartment? Were you able to do it via the access panel in the stern step or did you have to make another access hole to reach the backside? It seems like the current access could be...

Re: PDQ 36 Rudders

Did you ever determine the correct bushing for the rudder? I have a little play in my starboard rudder and would like to fix it while we are hauled for the summer.

Re: Permission to Come Aboard

I'm in Titusville, Fl so unfortunately can't help you out with a tour. Running the boat singlehanded just takes some practice and is certainly doable. I like having my lines ran to the cockpit but with the stability of the boat if you have to go to the mast it isn't a big deal. Obviously auto-pilot ...

Re: PDQ 36 LRC Backstay question

I have corrosion on my backstay chainplates at the water line. I believe the PO used cheap stainless when the rigging was replaced several years ago which is why I now have a problem. I'll be replacing mine at next haul-out. I don't believe corrosion is a common issue when proper material is used on...

Gennaker Rigging

I finally got around to cleaning my bow lockers and found a North Sails G3 Gennaker. The sail looks to be in good condition but I have some questions about rigging. I’ve never flown a spinnaker/gennaker so any advice you all have is appreciated. I’m not racing but do want to sail a bit faster. Shoul...

Re: Backstay chainplate replacement

I'm going to do what I can to get the paint off and stainless cleaned up. We are in the water so that'll add to the difficulty but the corrosion I can see is now above the water line due to removing excess weight. I think I should use a plastic scraper as to not damage the metal; hopefully it'll be ...

Re: Backstay chainplate replacement

The corrosion is visible with the plate installed. The submerged portion was painted with bottom paint by the previous owner. Paint has flaked off where the corrosion is located making it visible. Supposedly the standing rigging was replaced three or four years ago. Everything appears to be in good ...
