The site seems to be very quiet. Have folks started using a different Beneteau 40/ 43 gathering spot? I have found great utility on this site. Comments?

Hi Sam, while I no longer own a boat I still follow this site as well as others and you're right it seems very quiet. Not sure why it's become this way. Perhaps everyone's boat is running perfect. Um no doubt that's it LOL. I guess we'll have to see what others say.

Well I've been down almost two years with a heart issue that a quintuple bypass didn't cure. I can certainly relate to the latest medical news about advances in medication vs scalpel happy surgeons. And on top of that my first mate had a hip replaced in May and scheduled the other in six weeks! Plus she's talking about a new knee next summer!!! 

It's hell to get old. We really enjoyed the 40 in 2016 after the purchase but now I regret having it sit there in the slip not being used. We only visit for one day a month to check the bilge and dock lines or to scrub the deck, and now the hull is getting molded. I'm biting my tongue now and ending the rant! I still check in here maybe once every two months.

Happy Holidays to all the members and happy sailing!!

Engine Blower

A moment ago I was reading on another forum about a blower motor not working on a Beneteau 361 and then it occurred to me that I've never seen the engine compartment blower on my B40. If anyone here knows would you please enlighten me on it's location?Thanks,WayneSee More

"Chris that’s good news. The debris could have been from the tank when they cut opening for the hose fittings. Glad to hear you have it fixed. Mike"
