Re: Buying a PDQ Trawler Cat

ndm, remember one thing, 2003 was the last of the "early" boats. they are significantly lighter (chnges to fly bridge /head , galley 2005). we made 18+ knots on our sea trial (low fuel, no water, 4 aboard). as i stated, no wind we'll do 13.5-14 all day long. on the early boats i think that...

Re: Buying a PDQ Trawler Cat

hi ndm, we have had hull #23 for 12 years. we also have 75hp w/3 blade props (15x13). you can search my posts for a lot of things we dealt with over the years. i'll try and do a quick answer to some of your questions: we have 3300 hrs on the engines. 2 things we did that transformed the boat: 1) had...

Re: Heating Fresh Water

the water tank heater plumbing runs from the fw pump along the hull side just under the deck joint. it then terminates on a pipe entering the water heater. this pipe runs around inside the tank and thus heats the drinking water by transfer. the engine water pipe exits the heater and then connects to...

Re: Towing a RIB?

we tow our dinghy occasionally if we're moving the boat from a day anchorage to an overnite anchorage. when we do this we cleat to midship and tow it alongside next to exhaust. it tows nicely there and keeps the painter away from the props. we never tow if a) seas are rough or b) we're doing over 7 ...

Re: Cooktop replacement?

hi, over the 12 years we've had our boat we've experienced the failures in the same 2 areas as mac. we've "solved" the igniter by using a propane grill lighter. it's functional but not an optimal solution. we've had a couple of knob melts and that seems to be a function of the large pans. ...

Re: expansion tank?

james made a point in an earlier response in this thread that pdq fitted check valves on the cold side going into the tank. if this is the case on your boat, it needs to be on the hot side. if there is no check valve it can go anywhere beyond the water pump. i'm thinking of putting it behind the med...

Re: expansion tank?

ok, here is what i've learned. with a 6 gal water heater the water will expand approx 2-3% depending on the rise in water temperature. this is working out to approx 16 oz of engine water per heat cycle. i have found that whale makes a ss expansion tank which has an internal membrane and a capacity o...
