Re: Fuel Transfer

Ron, not silly at all. I appreciate the ideas. I am pretty sure that they are open as I went though that according to the directions in the books I have before trying to transfer the first time. I tried your suggestion of reversing the pump, but no success. A call from another owner indicated that h...

Fuel Transfer

I just tried to transfer fuel from the front to the aft tank for the first time. The front tank is full according to the gage. With the pump running and the valve open to transfer fuel aft, there is no indication of fuel transfer to the aft tank. Is there something needed to prime the pump? If so ho...

Re: Aqua Drive

A follow up report re Aquadrives. I did have them installed. Subjectively there is a major difference in noise and vibration. Unfortunately, I did not make any objective measurements before and after. Others have done this on other boats. The cost was significant but there is no question that there ...

Forward Compartment Access

I would be interested to know what ways people have developed to get down into and back out of the forward compartments in each hull and to get things in and out easily. The distance from the deck to the bottom makes it rather difficult and there are no natural steps or structures to help. Tom Green

Aquadrive

Thanks Armin. I appreciate the feed back. The boat here already has four bladed props which I think need "tuning" and they will do that before I take the boat. There were also many other minor easy things to fix that I found reduced vibration/noise considerably. They had to do with doors, windows an...

Aqua Drive

Does anyone have experience putting Aqua drive on a PDQ 34 and being able to verify the difference in noise and vibration? I would be interested in any experience or thoughts. I just purchased #99 from Signature Yachts in Seattle after losing out on #115 through PDQ's failure. The factory did not pu...

Yachtpath

We are new owners to be of PDQ 34 115. We will be taking possession of the boat next May and plan on eventually shipping it to Victoria BC on Yachtpath from Port Everglades, Florida. We will then bring it down to the Seattle area where we live. I have had some surprises in negotiating a fee with Yac...
