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!!

"Robert, The wires run directly from the switch up to the small box under the sink with the manual switch. You can disconnect the wires there and check the status of the switch with a meter. Should be pretty straightforward."

FLOAT SWITCH IN AFT SHOWER SUMP IN OUR 43

We were quietly enjoying a balmy summer evening when the aft shower sump pump began its annoying slurp, slurp, without any water to move.It appears something has failed, be it the float switch or the small integrated circuit which is part of the wiring under the sink.Any ideas as to the cure for it appears the entire sump must be removed to review the state of the switch, or is there a wiring clue to checking out the control unit with a multi meter.Happy New Year to all, warm, hot and smoky in…See More
