Winter Blues

Posted on January 31, 2010 at 9:56pm 0 Comments

Winter in Pensacola, we've had some really cold, wet weather this winter. Not very good for sailing, and our channel is due to be dreged in January/February. It's a good thing since I can't get out in the bay during the winter low tides. But the dock time has been good for doing maintenance jobs that need to be done. I replaced the accumulator for the fresh water system, changed the oil in the engine, pulled up all the floor boards and cleaned out the bilges. We also removed the old mainsail… Continue

The time is rapidly approaching. Sharon and I have been preparing to bring our boat home from the BVI. "Great Adventure" has been in charter service and is about to complete the Moorings phase out service. We plan to sail her from Tortola to St Thomas the first day and spend a couple of days there outfitting and picking up supplies.

Hey there, welcome to SeaKnots!

What a great plan to look forward to. Is your boat still in the BVIs of did you bring it back? I always wondered if the deals in BVI were too good to be true. How did it work out for you? Are you happy with how it went?

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
