PDQ 32

I will be putting my PDQ 32, Island Time, on the market next week. She has been a great boat to sail these past 8 years, allowing me to cruise to Mexico, the Bahamas, and Cuba. (Single-handed). I am moving on to get a boat to do the great loop, meaning going to the dark side. I will be signing with ...

What did you pay for the new netting, and is the old netting still available?

Re: galley sink faucet

Joe,


thanks for the response and info. I ordered a whale faucet (WHA-tb4112) from jmsonline, since seeing it recommended on an earlier post.
I let all know how that turns out.

galley sink faucet

I need to replace my galley faucet on the 32. The PDQ 36 may have a similar arrangement. The two supply nipples to the faucet go out the back through the wall, and do not make a 90 degree turn and go through the counter. Looking at old posts, it appears both Scanvik and whale make replacements, but ...

Re: Engine and Power Tilt Trouble

where is the fuse, and what size? good to have one as a spare. We're all dummies from time to time.

Re: battens

as follow- up, the battens slid readily into the cars when I had a helper. Simply a two-man job. Sail shape was improved considerably.

battens

I recently had my main repaired as needed, after an inspection by a sail loft indicated still in pretty good shape. I decided to replace the battens with stiffer ones. When installing the new ones of the same length, they are sticking out of the pocket at the leach by an inch. Question - is the luff...

Re: Rope clutches ?

I have the same - spinlock XA. Recently broke one and replaced all 8 as they are 20 years old, and brittle. Cost was about $15 each.

Re: Radar Installation

Thanks
That agrees with other research I've done on the matter - low power and exposure more than 1 meter away - no concern.

Radar Installation

I'm finally installing radar on my 32. A Garmin 18" dome. I plan to install the dome on top of a 9 ft pole at the starboard aft corner - easy to access , make wiring runs, etc. Of course the radar waves from the unit will be above the tops of peoples heads, except for those times when someone might ...
