Re: Source for cockpit locker hinge

Hey Terrapin, I looked thru my catalogs and cant find your cockpit hinge. My guess is that it is a Perko or Seadog, and possibly discontinued. The closest I found is made by Sugatsune LAMP and they call it a lift off hinge. Failing that try Marine Connection in Ft. Pierce Fl. They have a good select...

Re: Lower Helm seat sliding bracket

Hey Bill,
Have a look at Garelick for the seat slide. Failing that try Springfield.

Re: Fuel gauges not working

Bill,

Typically there was no inline fuse installed on the fuel gauge circuit after the distribution panel breaker. There is a chance it has be rewired since the factory. Try following the power feed wire from the gauge back and see where it leads.

Re: Fuel gauges not working

Hey Bill,
With the instruments on check the back of the gauge for power. If present try jumping the center terminal on the tank sender to the tank itself. If the gauge pegs to full then the gauge is good but sender may be defective.

Re: DISENGAGE TRANSMISSION AND CAN'T SHIFT STARBOARD SHIFTER AT THE LOWER HELM

The upper helm is slaved off the lower helm. If upper works lower should follow suit. Is there upper helm canvas that is interfering with shifting?

Re: Plumbing tubing

The plastic plumbing used on the 34's is 15 mm Whale tubing. Not to be confused with the 1/2" and 5/8" stuff sold at hardware stores. Tube is red for hot, blue for cold, and green for supply. Fittings are either white and also from Whale, or black from SeaTeck and both are interchaingable....

Re: PDQ 34/36 Curved Keels?

We saw this boat hauled out at the Hinkley yard in Stuart. Not sure of the story with the keel shape but can confirm it was not done at the PDQ factory.

Re: wiper arms?

Hi All, The sweep angle is 80 degrees and shaft length is 2.5 inches. On a side note the sweep angle can be adjusted to 50, 65, 80 and 110 degrees, and can be set to park to the left or right by changing the linkages inside the motor housing. My motor numbers on file are 71012 for a 110 sweep, and 7...

Re: If possible, would you buy a new PDQ 34 or 41?

There have been a few interested parties over the years inquiring about producing the PDQ power cats again. Unfortunately nothing has come to fruition. After touring the Miami boat show this year it is evident that there is a gap in the market as you mentioned. With 25 years of building, commissioni...

Re: Maitenance check?

Larry, The height above waterline routing of the hose feeding the shaft seals is not of much concern, as the other end of the hose should terminate at the vented loop which is well above water line. With this said, there are a few boats where the shaft seal is fed from the hose attached to the aft e...

Re: Maitenance check?

Screwing down the bilge pump bases is a super big no no. The hull at that point is only about 1/4" thick. I would advise checking for leaks, repair the holes with epoxy if all dry, and gluing the bases down. Reasons for it coming loose in the first place are usually not enough sealant applied a...

Re: Replaced the water heater

When swapping out water heaters we install a Starboard base for the heater to sit on. This will keep the unit from sitting in seawater from a leaky rudder seal. Good point about the plumbing fittings. The tube should push into the fitting about 1 1/8" to seat properly. A depth mark on the tube ...
