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!!

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
