"Thank you, Peter.
I will definitely try your suggestion. I had checked/cleaned the faucet screen (with no change), but I'd never considered the braided supply lines.
I'll try your suggestion and publish the results.
"I had a similar experience and after removing the faucet screen and removing a lot of calcium chips the low flow still remained. I found the blockage was in the smaller stainless braided lines that go from the semi rigid plumbing up into the…"
I am looking for a plumbing schematic for the fresh water system on a BEN OC 43 2-cabin version.The issue I am having is with water pressure to the galley sink. There is good pressure (hot and cold) to forward and aft heads and the cockpit shower, but galley sink is weak.I am thinking the following:- air in the line (proved this isn't the issue)- line routing and distance- clog in delta-facet or facet fittings, etc.- distribution manifoldThoughts and recommendations are welcome, but I want to…See More

I recently purchased a tube-type passive radar reflector. I wish to mount on one of the back-stays (as high as possible).I am considering using a stainless steel hose clamp to fasten to the back-stay, but I'm interested if anyone has a better solution?See More
I have identified a couple of instances where some of the electronics required recalibration.I am the second owner of our Ben OC 43, and am seriously considering returning all the electronics to factory default setting, and re-performing a full commissioning process.Does anyone know the distance from the water-line to the depth transducer? This is the only measurement I don't have, but need to recommission.Again, I have a 2009 Ben OC 43.Regards,-Brendan See More

Let me open by again thanking Larry for his post.
The issue is well known, and there appears to be at least two fixes I've seen, as follows:
1. Clean meter of silicon adhesive (I'm not convinced this is solving the root cause…"
Brilliant find. Do you recall the Part # for the LCD Screen and Ribbon at boatstuff.se? Or perhaps you can post the link to the part from their site. My Swedish is not as good as it used to be :)

"I installed a pair of Polk speakers in the cockpit. They fit where the stock units were and had much better sound. They were also water proof. We had the boat for 8 years and they still looked and sounded good.
Has anyone replaced/upgraded their cockpit speakers? The grill for one of mine is broken and they sound pretty terrible regardless, so it's time for an upgrade. I'd prefer to find something that fits the original footprint if possible.I'm open to any suggestions you may have about improving the audio quality both in the cabin and in the cockpit. Thanks in advance for your help!See More
