Does anyone have any thoughts on the weight difference between an Atomic 4 and a Westerbeke diesel?  I believe the Pilot 35s were originally designed to carry an Atomic 4.  My last boat had one and…Continue

Keel Cavity and water line

The Dorothy Rose is currently hauled at a yard in Port Townsend WA. 

She has recently begun to appear a bit down in the bow.  This brings up two questions:

#1 does anyone have a drawing that would show the original water line on a pilot 35?  My hull was repainted recently, and I want to confirm the painted water line is where it should be.

#2  When  she was hauled, the yard noticed a steady leak from the lower fitting of the rudder to the keel.  Does anyone know,…

deck vent cap

Also, I lost the deck vent cap overboard, sheet line wrapped around it.  Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement. This is for the solid fuel heater below that vents through deck via a pipe.  Hinckley says they can custom make one but I feel that might be a little pricy.  This is the vent cap not the lid.  Thanks

Hull Speed

Does anyone know the hull speed for a 35.  Sailed mine this weekend in 18-19 knot wind and hit 7+ speed close hauled.

Head seacock

Hi everyone. We hauled out today and first on the agenda was servicing the tapered plug seacocks. The outlet seacock for the head is installed in such a way that the plug cannot be removed. The bulkhead is in the way. Has anyone else run in to this? Are we missing something?Thanks for any information.See More

"Don- There's a small bronze plaque attached to the forward facing lower companionway frame on Caper (Tecumseh).  It comprises a sloop that may be a P35.  Do you know of its provenance?"

Ahoy Pilot 35 Owners! Just talked with NING again for the first time since late August, and here is an email reply from them:

Hi!

It is true that back in August we suspended our Mini subscription plan for the 2.0 NING platform, but since August a lot of customers asked to bring it back, so this is why our managers made a decision to restore this membership plan for the members who currently own it. 
Basically, it doesn't change anything for you, you are still paying $19.95 per year for your Network.
If you have any other questions do not hesitate to contact us back, and we will assist you!

Regards,
Anastasia
