Re: Auto Pilot rudder re-calibration

Thanks for the feedback.
In our case it looks like when we hit the mud it loosened up the rudder reference shaft. We just had to center the rudders as best we could an re-tighten.
But, while there we notices some corrosion so this area should be inspected from time to time.

Auto Pilot rudder re-calibration

My auto pilot has stopped working properly. 2006 PDQ 34 When I engage the pilot the boat turns to port until the rudder is all the way to port and I'm doing circles. I have calibrated the compass and was proceeding to calibrate the rudder but the error rate was >7 and the online reference I got was....

Re: Looking for solar panels

Hi Gerry, I just had an aft bimini and 2x350s installed at Stuart Yacht last summer. These things really crank out the power so I've just increased by battery bank to close to 1000 Amps. And they fit perfectly. I'm off the boat while they finish with the battery install. If you're interested in know...

Re: Fresh Water water flow PDQ 34

The top or head of the filter has to be removed to be cleaned. It is molded plastic but when removed, or unatttached from the water lines, you can give it a good cleaning. Best of Luck

Re: Fresh Water water flow PDQ 34

It took some time to find the cause and solution to the pump re-prime issue. This is what we found... 1. The tank output hose, that feeds the fresh water system, had been shoved fully into the tank making contact with the bottom. There should be around 2" of hose visible on the top of the tank....

Fresh Water water flow PDQ 34

I screwed up and ran the fresh water tank dry. Now, though the pump is still working it is just sucking air and won't re-prime. The fresh water tank is full. The water simply isn't draining into the lines. I guess it may be a huge air lock or perhaps something that was sucked up from inside the tank...

Re: New owner in Jacksonville need help

Bill- First of all, welcome to the group. You will find lots of good help here. I have hull 114, and have had the worst time with the pressure water system. Here is what I suggest. Check the switch panel to be sure the pressure water breaker is on. When you ask for water, if you hear the pump runni...
