"I’ve finally posted the info on the installation of the electric engine in my 2-29:
There are several related posts, plus a link to more pictures.

I've finished painting the non-skid on my lockers with KiwiGrip, a product from New Zealand described in the January 2011 issue of Good Old Boat magazine. Here's my experience: KiwiGrip Non-SkidSee More
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.
Anne, I am in Hampton and belong to HYC. I race Wed night beer cans and some Saturdays with OPCYC, but give me a shout on other days if you want some sailing company. My regular email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will give you my phone number.

"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…"
"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…"
"Frank your comment didn't show up in the discussions on the 40/43 site. It's simply a comment on your page. Not sure if others will see it. For what it's worth I don't have the problem on our boat. There are two pieces of…"
"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…"
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
