Summer Sailing Trip, Mobile Bay Alabama to Port St. Joseph Florida.


We Set sail Tuesday morning destined for Port St. Joe.  This is our first over night sailing trip.  Forecast is for good winds and calm seas.  We have a nice sail out of the bay, heading south till we can clear the Mobile ship channel.  We head east staying about 3-5 miles of shore, we are sailing on a beam reach winds out of the south.  It’s a fantastic sail, I head below to…

If all goes well with gasket replacing, i might try to find two opening ports used for the head for a later in the summer projects..maybe..depends how brave i get and if I don't drop any of the cabin ports in the drink.. :-) ttyl going to boat in a couple of hours with long underwear on...weather sux!!!!!

Kitchen cabinet pegs loose!

We have a beneteau 40 2009, in the kitchen cupboard there are pegs in one cupboard to organize dishes and plates etc.Strangely the pegs are very loose, don't fit the holes well so don't really stay put to keep the dishes in place.Can other owners say if their pegs are also very loose? Are they meant to be glued/sikaflexed in place?What other solutions have been tried to get them to stay put?…See More

I have fitted brand new batteries and had a couple of attempts by technicians to fix this at quite an expense without positive results. I am…See More
