Nice to read you enjoy PH!
Hope my new boat is finished soon and once we will join too - despite the fact that I never raced in my whole life ;-)

Mind sharing what is so special in MNL-Boracay and what you think about HKG-MNL (or SUBIC or wherever it ends)?

Hello Blubaju,

I am planning to go to the Philippines in the future.

How do you find the sailing and facilities there?

What do you use for maps and Pilots? Are they easy to get?

Where are you in the Philippines now?

sorry Pinoys, this crazy upload feature always cuts the flag instead of leaving the proportions intact, but does not give any hint of the accepted picture size either. I tried for more than an hour but have to stop now, I'll try later again or if someone has one in an uploadable size, please let me know

"There's no circling on the 40/43 winches. It's simply a screw off collar. WD40 and a heavier hammer should get the job done."

Bruce Bogdanoff replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Mike is correct. The is a vertical pin in the middle of the winch handle hole that pushed down and disengages the electric motor on the winch. Also, on my Oceanis 45, there is a circlip that holds the top on. I don't remember if the 40 electric…"

Wayne replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Thanks Mike. I did use a light hammer but I do have heavier ones at work and I did use WD40. As for a disengagement pin, I didn't see one when I looked down in the top of the winch. I did see a small circular pattern in the bottom that I…"

"Thanks Mike, however I have tightened both attachments and if you grab the track in the middle you can move it side to side making the noise. I took it apart, slid the track forward to add tape to both side of the boom, than careful slid the track…"

"I can't imagine anything in the winch top that would bend. Other than the electric drive and a disengagement pin that activates when the winch handle is inserted the winch is the same as the others. It sounds like the collar is jammed due to…"

Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch

Took care of the lint build up on the fridge condensers and the leaky shower sump this weekend. Then went to the electric cabin top winch to disassemble, clean and lube only to find the top cap wouldn't unscrew. It should have by light tapping with a screwdriver but to no avail.So I stepped it up a notch with a brass drift and screwdriver and again, no go. I then tried a steel drift and the cap never moved in the slightest. It is as if it was secured with permanent Lock Tite.Now when I say its…See More

"I'm having a knocking from the boom while sailing. The track on top of the boom is loose, but it can't be tightened any further. Has anyone else had this problem, if so has anyone found a solution"
