Over the sheave inside the mast then out through the mast about 6 feet from the mast base.

Ste spinnaker halyard should be put back through the mast. Over the sheave inside the mast then out through the base. 

I had a profurl furler. If you have the same there has to be a "Twist Stop" attached to the forestay near the top above the upper bearing.  It stops the furled sail halyard from twisting around the sail at the top.  It is about 4 in diameter, looks like a flying saucer with half of the outer edge cut out. Sounds like the rigger may have left it off.  Also if the jib halyard is to tight hte upper bearing will be "tilted" and may be the problem when furling the sail.  Hope this helps.https://jimmygreen.com/9205-thickbox_default/profurl-cruising-manual-reefing-system.jpg

Robert, we added the halyard after we purchased the boat primarily as a way to reach the mast top. When I asked to have it run directly to the top and not through the eye the service manager refused to do so. Apparently there was a concern that leading directly from the top of the mast would create excess pressure on the rigging. I hope this helps.

Hello all,

Our 2010 Oceanis 43 recently underwent a 10 year rigging replacement. The boat was returned with the spinnaker halyard led through the stainless choker attached to the top of the torestay hounds fitting; we feel as a result of that the headsail furler has been very troublesome. and heavy to operate. Last weekend we ended up with a halyard wrap that stopped everything.

The rigger feels that is the correct running of that halyard though to the best of our knowledge it formally ran directly from the mast top sheave clearing the top furler swivel.  Any wise owners out there who can provide the correct information?.

Sheath blocks on Z Spar Beneteau 43, 2010

Hi,

I’ve been thinking that sheath blocks with internal bearings might be useful on main and spinnaker.

Anyone ever fitted them, are they available, do you think it will be worth it.

Hi Everyone,

Help needed. I have a 43 launched July 2010. During this season the holding tank seacock on the saloon heads failed open. Irritating but liveable with in the English Channel. Boat now out of water and can’t identify the manufacturer or type number. Ancasta have consulted France but want nearly £300 for New one. Valve is right angle one with, not measured, 2inch 50mm fittings. 

Has anyone replaced one if so do you know make and type number also how does it come off the through hull fitting. It looks as if there is threaded connector on the outlet side, normal hose and jubilee clips on inlet side.

I’ve attached photo from member posted back in 2012. Mine is exactly the same.

many thanks

Michael Boyle, Barti Blue

I'm having a knocking from the boom while sailing. The track on top of the boom is loose, but it can't be tightened any further. Has anyone else had this problem, if so has anyone found a solution

to reduce yawing, use a bridle set up on bow and toss a bucket off stern.,,make sure the bitter end of bucket line is affixed to boat.
