I have no idea!

Maybe you can call Beneteau with your manufacture's Identification Number and Beneteau can give you the hull number.

James,

I don't know the hull number of my B43, where can I find It?

Saludos.

They changed the site about a year ago and dropped the hull number entry for logging in.

Their pricing is fair on some items and outrageous on others but overall I think Beneteau pricing is "good". Staff is very helpful and shipping is prompt. If you order the seacock from them you will get the original manufacturers part, good or bad!

I checked and the Beneteau 43 is a Oceanis series boat in the US. The B43 on Beneteau site is the Beneteau 43 Oceanis series boat. Give them a call for further confirmation. I think the first year is 2008 and last year is 2011 for B43.

All the Best!

James

Thanks for the info James!
The link dosn't work as you say. I've set up an acount but "Oceanis 43 doesn't" exist, only Beneteau 43.

By the way where I have to look at to see the hull number?

Saludos.

looks like those links are not gonna work without an account. Sorry about that but you have the info.

Here is a link to Beneteau USA site with full diagram

http://spareparts.beneteauusa.com/controleur.php?action=catasys/fra...

This is for the yanmar 4jh4ae, 54hp engine

If this is not your engine let me know I should be able to find your model and engine.

Comment by James Taylor on May 15, 2013 at 8:44pm

You did not tell us your boats model or engine designation. I checked the Beneteau USA site for the B43 and the  seacock for the b43 is listed like this below, I think that stands for

Valve=valve

2w= 2way

1/4T= 1/4 turn

1Brass nm= 1inch brass (not sure about nm)

here is a photo;

cost USA $23.20

VAlVE 2W 1/4T FF 1 BRASS NM

Living far from your boat has many problems, and one is that having something done takes a lot of time. Now I want to change the engine raw water seacock and need to order one, but I don't know its size and I won't be able to get to the boat in 3 or 4 weeks. If anyone nows or can measure it and let me know I would appreciate it.

Saludos and nice sea!

We installed a 15 amp inline fuse on each panel's positive line and 30 amp fuse on out bound positive line from controller to battery. That might be a bit of overkill on the fuses (panel  to controller fuses are not a requirement) but better safe than sorry.

"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"
