Deck gelcoat repairs

Continuing saga - in limping Good Way back to the bay after the race to have the yard repair/replace the prop shaft and motor mounts (yay- they were gracious to foot the entire cost!), I blew out the harken roller furler (this had been giving me trouble for a good year - see posts). When the furler ...

Re: stack packs for Freedom Yachts

Lol - Geoff - talk to Travis at Mack Sails and he’ll fix you up perfectly IF you detail specifically the configuration

Also the Stack Pack (Doyle) is a great product, with a higher build quality as seen with the built in Dacron liner, etc., but also with a higher cost…..

Re: stack packs for Freedom Yachts

Mjwalek- I use the Mack Sails Mack-Pack. I’ve had their system on three boats now and do love it. This pack has battens to hold shape for the large main (similar battens are on larger catamaran mainsails) and the battens keep the pack open for the sail to drop into. The Mack pack is easy to install,...

Re: new propane tank won't fit on Pedrick 35

I have the f35 p also - last year I bought a WM tank and it fit - probably the last of the lot. My propane locker is starboard aft, bottom of which drops into the lazarette- option one would be to cut the bottom out of the locker and extend it a couple inches. Option two would be to hacksaw off the ...

Re: F35 holding tank

Right - love it :D I have crouched on top of my holding tank from access from the starboard lazarett- thought I’d never be able to clamber out. You’ll do it! Dealing with a bent prop shaft and an 80 nm motor back to the boat yard - very slow. So know what you mean.

Recommend contacting Paul Dennis Warren River Boatworks WRBtwks@aol.com. I believe you’ll need to carefully cut a large access panel from your aft cabin, remove the old tank and find another plastic tank of suitable size and shape.

Good luck.

Re: PSS Shaft Seal

Right. Could the shaft have been not aligned perfectly to the coupler? The yard sent out 2 people to inspect - they found a alignment gap from the coupler to the transmission. With the motor turning in gear the prop shaft became bent. They put in a temporary fix by adjusting the motor mounts to redu...

Re: PSS Shaft Seal

Thanks Kommy000- that’s how it was before Smooth and quiet. Boat yard is sending mechanics to where the boat is (80 miles away) as I’ll need to motor back and things will definitely break like they are if not repaired first.
