It was a long time coming!!! Remote lever installed. Backed out of slip like I knew what I was doing! Sailed for about an hour then brought Twizzled back in with wind blowing on my nose in her in slip without touching anything and stopped her bow 4 feet from dock. Such relief!!!! Going to a pig roast moonlight lake sail now. Ribs even feel better! Stress?!? Glad it's done. Omg, can't tell u how twizzled i was over this...too much time to think.... have a very high "anticipation" mode button i guess. :-)

Thanks, hope to be sailing her all week if weather cooperates. Only thing I haven't experienced sailing is lightening..don't want to go there!

This is the BEST news ~!~*!*~!*~*!*~*~!*~**~!*~! and it isn't even August ~!*~!*~*! Cheers Sailorette ~!~!
Good on ya girl. Don't stop now, and stay away from the lightning.
Congrats are lucky you know how and can go now whenever...I am at the mercy of finding experienced people to go out with controls when I can go out...but I am grateful for many nice people I have met. Do you go alone?
terri---lightning isnt sooo bad if there is a larger boat next to ye---is scary when there is no one else around----just make sure there is a taller mast near

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
