Re: New engines - source? and market for the old ones?

Drew, I saw in your blog (http://sail-delmarva.blogspot.com/2012/08/new-engines.html) that you trimmed the wood shelf. Do you know how much to trim it? The picture shows it up to a ridge, but I do not have that ridge on my shelf. Also, I have only ordered one new engine, not two. My budget can't jus...

Re: Air Conditioning Intake

I have no idea how I missed this post up until now. I installed AC in Chicago-based Phenix PDQ 32 hull #7 in 2000, a year after I bought it. What caused me to do this was a weeklong trip to Michigan in late-August where the daytime high was always in the 90s, sometimes 100! I looked at many options ...

Re: Keeping genoa sheets from snagging on mast mounted winches

I've wanted to do this since I saw the original post. Your new picture has given me motivation.

What do you use for sheets on the genoa? It looks like it is about a 135%?

Re: Sunshine was sunk by the US Coast Guard

I am very sorry to hear about your boat.

How was this determination made? A request on their part or your part? An order on their part ?

Re: Transom Shower Replacement options

Thanks guys. I'll check out Home Depot and see what I can find. It would be great NOT to put in a new shower, as the current enclosure is sealed well. But the lack of a cover is unsightly. As for access to the area behind, I had my wife (she's small) crawl in there a few years ago and tighten a hose...

Re: PHRF rating for 32

Very helpful, thank you. Would you happen to have the mainsail and jib measurements (MGT,MGU,MGM of mainsail and midgirth of jib) that you submitted with your application, just so I can compare it to mine and know what I might expect?

Transom Shower Replacement options

It is a 1995-made Whale - Swim 'n' Rinse Deck / Transom Shower The cover has cracked and come off (it was the one held on by a string, not a hinge) and I can't find a replacement for the cover. And the nozzle is wonky and needs replac...

Re: Soft Shackles--Where Have You Found Them Useful?

The chain is attached to the swivel. The swivel is attached to the shackle. The shackle is attached to the anchor. It's to back up the shackle. But it is probably true that it is unnecessary.

Re: Soft Shackles--Where Have You Found Them Useful?

I use one at the attachment from the swivel to the anchor. This is in addition to the anchor shackle. But you got me thinking about the jib sheets. :)

Re: New PDQ32 mainsail report

Thanks for the report. As for the Tides marine track and hardware, did you silicone spray the entire track? Or it might be that the benefit is mostly for it to come down in a few seconds. Is you main halyard let to the cockpit or do you raise it from the mast? For the loose fitted main, what did you...
