PT35 (Performance Trawler)

I would like to contact any other owners of a pt35. Mine is a 1985 sundeck model with a single lehman 225hp engine.

Can`t help with the boat, but can you describe the 225hp Lehman? What engine is it based on, six or v8, turbo or not?

We already chatted by PM but we've got the same boat. Pineapple Girl has our same boat as well.

BTW, Pineapple Girl made an awesome shelf for the deep kitchen "hole cabinet" which I just copied. Google her for her blog.

My single Ford Lehman is turbo-charged, developing 225HP from a 363 cubic inch block at 2450RPM. (The naturally aspirated 120HP and 135HP models had a 380 cubic inch block). I usually cruise at 1700-1800RPM giving me about a 8 1/2 kt speed probably consuming under 3 GPH. Maximum speed is about 10 1/2 kts which I rarely use. I have just under 1900 hours on her.

Bensjoy, thanks for responding. My Lehman book (predating the 135hp) shows the 363cu engine developing 150hp@2400. Tweaked to 225hp, still not working hard.
Great you found some PT35 owners on TF.

"Performance (high-speed) trawler" is definitely an oxymoron.

Now Mark you're just jealous of our 15knot max speed. That we achieved one time for about a minute. Lol. Usually cruise at 8 or 9.

Yes indeed we have a 1984 pt 35 w twin turboed Perkins. 210 (or 220, depends who you ask) hp per. Way more than we need. Love the boat, had it two years now. Our blog is pineapple-girl.blogspot.com. Any questions ask away. Eric's shelf is much nicer than ours as he used cedar, I believe, versus our wire shelving. But he has closet connections. It really helps making the bottomless pit corner storage in the galley more usable.

I'll just leave earlier or get there later. Water passing by at 6.3 knots looks fast to me.

Propane Tank Location on PT 35

MY 10 pound propane tank is located inside the storage area forward of the flybridge helm on the port side. It's ventilated by two teak louvered doors but does not conform to propane installation guidelines. Has any other PT 35 owners relocated the propane tank?

Mine doesn't have propane but I'm interested to hear that's where yours is. How does the line get to the stove? Through the starboard side chase down past the lower helm?

Bed, my propane is in the same place but without any ventilation. I rarely use the stove but when I do I open the hatch and then close the valve when done. Post a pic of your vents.

Propane tank installation

The ventilation I am referring to is from the teak lumbered doors on the bulkhead on either side of the steering wheel on the flybridge.I believe regulations and my insurer require that propane tanks must be in an "airtight" locker with an overboard drain. I've never had a problem with the current system. Approved propane lockers are sold but there is no location where they can be installed that would look neat.

Ok, mine is in the seat locker just to the left of the helm seat. Never an issue but as I said, it is hardly ever used.

Baggiolini: is the tank in a propane tank locker within the port side seat?
