It's beena while since I last logged onto Seaknots.  Now, I have a question.  Can anyone recommend places to put a boat on the hard near Toulon, France or Genoa, Italy?

Hi Andrea, glad you liked Sardinia... and all the rest there is nearby, Corsica etc. You didn't mention Capri, Positano, Ponza, Palmarol or Ventotene, these are well worth visiting. Further away and something different, is Tunisia, for me a fascinating landfall, Bizerte, then Sidi bu said, ancient Carthagena. From there to Malta, also fascinating.

I havn't cruised Croatia yet, but I will. As you know, Turkey has been a favourite of mine, having spent four years there. When you go I can give you many tips.

We loved loved it! We basically started with the Balearic Islands headed over to Sicily, the Aeolian Islands, Sardinia, Corsica then to Barcelona. Along the way we found so many beautiful places to add to our list of favorites.

Balearic Islands - Formentera
Sicily - Cefalu
Sardinia, Costa Smeralda - Cala Coda di Cavallo
Sardinia, Costa Smeralda - In general it is just beautiful
Strait of Bonifacio - Lavezzi
Corsica - Bonifacio

Our blog in the med starts with this post:

Other long standing favorites we have are:
France - St. Tropez
Corsica - Girolata
Corsica - Calvi
Spain, Costa Brava - Cadaques

Now that our boat is in the Med we hope to discover new places to add to our list of favorites! Do you have any suggestions? Love to hear them!

Andrea, sorry I missed your comment on a visit to the Costa Smeralda, my home sailing ground. Tell me, how did it go?

We will be spending the next month in Costa Smeralda, Sardinia, Italy. Does anyone have any advice on anchorages, marinas, restaurants or any other local knowledge that would make our time here even more special?

A friend is sending his boat to Genoa. He plans to leave it in the Med indefinitely. We will be spending a lot of time on the boat and are interested in anchorages and marinas in and around Genoa--about 100 miles each way from there. Any info would be appreciated.

There are some safe areas ...

Right now we are headed to Sicily and Costa Smeralda. I hope there are some safe anchorages so we don't have to go to a marina every day. Do you have any recommendations?

We are in Greece after staying/working on the boat for a year, and will go westward as soon as we receive a new genoa, hopefully mid June. Probably visiting Egypt first, then Crete and Malta. Sailing family with two teenagers onboard!

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More

B43 Inverter Buzzing/humming noise

Hello -Have a 2008 B43 hull 40 which I purchased second hand about a year ago. been very happy with the boat but have 1 annoying problem I would like to resolve. When switching on the inverter I have the following 2 potential issues:1) Voltage display is low, shows between 102-106 volts2) Humming noise coming from some sort of auto switch which is encased in a white plastic box behind the cabinet where the radios are mountedI only have the problem when the inverter is on, no issue with shore…See More
