Re: Keel Modification

No, I would not change anything. I was quite happy with the way it turned out, a pretty simple project if done in concert with a bottom job. In a nutshell, I ground the surfaces clean, cut a 1/2-inch FRP blank, and ground the trailing edge of the blank to match the taper of the keel. I then bonded ...

Re: Changing running lights and courtesy lights to LED on PDQ 32

LED Reading lights in cabins: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XPY8YQD/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 A little brighter than the stock halogens (but much cooler and lower power draw), and they have a frame "lip" around the leds so that one person can read without the ...

Re: Keel Modification

Hi Drew, the article link in post #1 is no longer on your website. Is that because it was moved to your book? https://www.amazon.com/Faster-Cruising-Coastal-Sailor-Drew-ebook/dp/B0723FC1QW I have the book, and you describe the project completely in Chapter 3, which also includes a list of parts.

Changing running lights and courtesy lights to LED on PDQ 32

I have PDQ 32 hull #7. Time to change out the stern running light (pictured below) and also maybe the courtesy lights. I'd like to convert them to LED *without* any cutting! Picture of stern light is here, I think it is this one but not 100% sure: http://a.co/euVIXu0 running-light.jpg As for the cou...

Re: battens

My battens slide into the car at the luff, then they are held in place (compressed) at the leech by a velcro strap (similar to what is described here: http://www.leesails.com/velcro.htm). As thinwater points out, it is important that the batten slide into the car at the luff. Otherwise, you will get...

Re: Shameless Book Plug

I have the first 3 books in the original post. They are very good reading for a PDQ owner. Drew does a very good job and not leaving out ANY detail.

I downloaded them into Kindle.

Re: One tank, two engines, water separators and tee and check valves. Recommended setup?

Thanks Drew. I'm going to redo the fuel line system tomorrow, with separate filters for each engine. While I'm at it, do you think it is a good idea to change to 3/8 fuel line instead of 1/4? The Yamaha fuel bulbs and line that came with the new engines were all 3/8. EDIT: my research shows that the...
