Re: If possible, would you buy a new PDQ 34 or 41?

We could in no way afford one built today, but we love the boat.

Re: Berth Reading lights

Just adding a note about replacement of the original halogen bulbs with LEDS. What an amazing difference - lots of good light and no detectable heat, not to mention the savings in battery power. We kept all the original fixtures since they were in good shape.

Re: Big performance improvement

Thanks for sharing all that info, Mac. Sorry about the price tag, but if all is well now and much better than before, I am sure you are happy about that.

Well, you can't get doctors and surgeons to agree on many things, either.

Re: Replaced the water heater

You are welcome, John. I searched online and found a trusted supplier that sold it for $238. You could easily pay over $400 for essentially the same thing with another brand name. Just Google Kuuma 11811 and you'll see plenty of shops selling them, along with their prices.

Replaced the water heater

I could not find any postings about this, so I am simply reporting that I replaced the water heater this week. The replacement was from Kuuma and seems like a very nice unit for a lot less than some brands. The original model Force 10 was leaking and I figured at 12 years old, it was time. The Kuuma...

Re: Transmission Maintenance Schedule

I agree, Mac, that my attempts to find the same info have been unsuccessful. I change about every 500 hours or so. I have never sent the oil out either.

Re: Berth Reading lights

The wires servicing our berth lights run inside the battery compartment. You said you looked there, so it remains a mystery to me. Good luck.

Re: Anchor Rode Options

This thread is a few months old, but just catching up on some things I missed. We bought our boat with a 55 lb (no typo) Rocna already aboard. It is definitely overkill, but the extra dozen pounds is pretty insignificant compared to the other weight that gets stowed in the forward lockers. I have al...

Re: Move Water Heater

Interesting, Bob. First, I have heard of Stuart Yacht making that mod to a boat before, supposedly to avoid wasting all the water while waiting for hot water to arrive. I don't know if coolant hoses were run from one of the engines, or if the heater was solely electric. We tend to move a lot so we g...

Re: HAPPY NEW YEAR

Yes, a belated Happy New Year to all. We lead a club cruise to a local anchorage at Cayo Costa Island over the New Year. We had slightly cool (that means 60F down here), but otherwise wonderful conditions Sat and Sun, but we all needed to scoot home (1-4 hours depending on your boat) before the fier...

Re: Fresh Water water flow PDQ 34

Yes, cleaning out the tank sediment (from whatever sources) is something we should do periodically. It was interesting that I did this in Feb of 2015, but wound up removing the filter because the housing inlet was clogged with gravel/flakes within about 18 months. Of course, we were cruising extensi...

Re: Fresh Water water flow PDQ 34

Thanks. It is great for all concerned when the results are posted here. Glad it worked out for you, and now you are intimately familiar with that portion of your boat's systems.

Cheers,
Duane
