Sailing in the Buff

Lou, for some unknown reason the group has mysteriously vanished.  It no longer appears on my page either.  Hope it wasn't something we said!

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

Posted by John Hanrahan on November 23, 2015 at 7:08pm 0 Comments

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.

Many thanks, John

BEN OC 43 - Fresh Water Plumbing Schematic

I am looking for a plumbing schematic for the fresh water system on a BEN OC 43 2-cabin version.The issue I am having is with water pressure to the galley sink.  There is good pressure (hot and cold) to forward and aft heads and the cockpit shower, but galley sink is weak.I am thinking the following:- air in the line (proved this isn't the issue)- line routing and distance- clog in delta-facet or facet fittings, etc.- distribution manifoldThoughts and recommendations are welcome, but I want to…See More
