Re: Re-pitching propellers

Boats not on the hard now but hopefully this winter if the Marina ever gets space available. This is the best picture I have, taken during the survey. Sorry no measurements. This prop is actually a feathering prop, not folding.

Re: Re-pitching propellers

Re: Winterizing Water System

Thank you both for your ideas. I did end up using a little battery powered pump from HF to get out the remaining water and got it down to less than a 1/2”. Measured what came out to be approximately 5 gallons. So I guess I can assume that 5 gallons of fresh water are unusable in the tank. Good to kn...

Winterizing Water System

Using the pex tubing and Whale connection is was relatively easy to drain all the water lines. My only concern is the water tank itself. It still has what feels to be at least 2” of water on the bottom. This is the amount left below the connection where the pump draws from. Is there another drain so...

Cockpit Door Latch Replacement

Anyone have a part number for the cockpit door latch and lock. Due to a break in, the last owner discarded the original damaged lock and I would like to replace it. Is it a Perko Rim Latch and Lock set? Pictures of the original lock set would also help.
Thanks.

Re: PDQ 32 Wanted

The boat is currently located in Jersey City just off New York harbor. Will keep it there till spring and then will move it to Florida where we live. Will probably keep it in Titusville to start with.

Re: Need a surveyor in NYC area.

Thank you for the response, unfortunately all BoatUS does now is give you the links to two accredited boat surveying organizations. Not really any recommendation.
