Re: PDQ 34 information

hi,

i'm the wrong one to answer your detail questions. you should probably get on the sailcat 36 forum and post your questions. i'm not sure how many actually visit this forum.

good luck.

Re: PDQ 34 information

hi,

i believe that the early boats were 34'. pdq stretched it to 36' soon after. basically it's the same boat. i'm sure more knowledgable owners will fill you in on details.

Re: BAHAMAS WIFI

we've used btc in abacos, eleuthera, berrys, and exuma as far as staniel cay. as was said, it will be good wherever there is a tower. the problem is in many places a tower is a long way away (i.e. waderick wells - approximately 20-25 miles). about 5 years ago another carrier, aliv, was started. thei...

Re: Nova Kool Refrigerator

hi all, based on a suggestion from another post, this fall we decided to remove the drip tray from just below the cold plate. we observed that to keep the fridge at 38-40 degrees, we could turn the dial down from 5 to 4. also, the temperature stayed more uniform over a greater area in the box. this ...

Re: Sliding Door Alignment

mac,

if it doesn't look like weather strip check out this post ...."Sliding Door Leak (Another Kind)". this leak drove us crazy for years. we just went thru one of the rainest summers in fl and not a drop in the boat.

Re: Sliding Door Alignment

hi,

i bought the weather stripping directly from pompanette. after a lot of testing it became clear that the water wasn't getting past the weather strip but from somewhere else. i covered that in another post. i never replaced the weather strip.

Re: Bottom Paint

hi, we've operated in fl & bahamas for about 15 years. the last 6 the yard has done painting and used micron csc. it has worked very well. i've also used petit barnacle barrier (aka rustoleum cold galvanizing spray) on rudders and running gear. it's great stuff, no slime, no barnacles. i use that in...

Re: Pulling Bundles and a few other questions

hi carl, get a heat gun and check the rw temp in and out of the heat exchanger when it's running hard. i believe the out should be about 20 degrees warmer. if they are almost the same then the bundle has a problem. rw tubes will show blockage right away. fw between tubes is harder to detect a proble...

Re: Pulling Bundles and a few other questions

hi, heat exchanger: i've done this 3 or 4 times over the years. in theory you could but you'd risk dislodging the o-ring on the rear end. i always took both off. when you do mark the bundle relative to the housing because end caps have a ridge which needs to match the bundle. marsh harbour boatyard ...
