Hi Anne, I don't know how to reply on the email@example.com to you. I am just getting the hang of that sight.
If you still need assistance for the Cock Island race on June 20th, let me know.
I would also love to give you a hand with the prior prep work and moving the boat.
I will be able to help Thursday after 5pm but i have to report at 530am the next day to work.
Friday after 5pm until Monday 5am, which would allow me to help you bring the boat back on Sunday.
I can participate on Wednesday night races but I will not be available until the 12 of June due to transportation.

give me a call anytime after 1700 or txt anytime.

As I mentioned before we…"
"Hi Mike, thanks for the input!
Are there any rough guidelines for when the bearings need replacing? What is too much play? it seems a hard question to answer!
we've been sailing full time for the last 3 years and just recently I noticed slight…"
"I'm a bit surprised you need to replace the bearings on an 2008. I've not heard of any issues other than early model 43s required a brace be installed at the quadrant. Actually the issue was discovered by Franc who happens to own and run…"
Has anyone replaced the rudder bearings on a beneteau 40 2008/9? If someone has done this job could they please tell me what the part numbers are for both the bronze upper and lower bearing sleeves and also for the nylon thrust washers.
