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.

"Simo, see my reply to the original post. There are a lot of items in the steering system that can cause heavy steering. Ensure everything is properly adjusted and lubricated before you do any major work on the rudder bearings. Good luck Mike"

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.
