If you have the bandwidth I'd recommend watching the video in HD. Use the little gear symbol on the youtube window to select 720P HD.

Re: Stress Cracks and Surveyor in Brunswick, Ga

Our PDQ 32 does not have a Genoa track and I know that Drew's does not either. I don't know if the factory ever did install them. Maybe someone else would know. The crack that you spoke of, and that I wrote about on our blog, occurred in a spot where the fiberglass was visibly thinner than other are...

Re: Ice Box Lid

We also had a situation where our compressor would run non-stop. The cause of ours was actually too much refrigerant in the system, not too little. While more insulation will help in the long run, as mentioned, it may not fix the problem. I would definitely have someone check the refrigerant level b...

Re: Bahamiun mooring
