Hey Bill, Blowing to hard for sailing in Lake Ontario at the moment! :-) Will be studying in  P.V. Mex this winter- hoping to get some quality sailing time in on the Bay!

Hi Bill, It's a Mustang. Pricey but given all the other gadgets and gizmos on a boat, my most valuable item. If you search around a bit, you may see a promotion.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the nice words about my books. I wish I knew more writers who write about boats and the sea. I know of Sam Llewellyn, Paul Garrison, Linda Greenlaw, Justin Scott (Shipkiller).... I think that's about it. Maybe I'd include Randy Wayne White (the early ones) on that list.

I'm working on the new book. More sailing than ever.

Hi Bill.
Boy, I wish Circe were mine. She is a beautiful boat. No, she belongs to a fellow I met in the Abacos last summer. She is a Bristol. I don't remember the exact length - either a 40 or a 42. Her owner sails her singlehanded and I loved the story about him putting up his spinnaker alone while sailing out the Whale Cay Passage.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the kind words about the books. I'm working on a new stand alone sailing thriller, but not done yet.

"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…"

Mike Brown replied to Wayne's discussion Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"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"
